Grozny

£20.00

Product description

Dewi Lewis Publishing, Stockport 2018. Condition: As New/Very Good. Winner of the Luma Rencontres Dummy Book Award 2017.

Layer by layer, Grozny: Nine Cities reveals the complex life of the Chechen capital. Nearly 300,000 lives were destroyed in the two recent wars. Moscow vowed to rebuild this devastated society and win over Chechen civilians, but loyalty to the Kremlin and Chechnya's oil now seem to be its only concerns. And with Russian tanks off its streets, Russian nationals are isolated. Chechen suicide bombers attack public places and Chechen police detain civilians for their involvement with the radical Islamic underground. New mosques emerge. Men proud of their black BMWs, assault rifles and pointy, black shoes ban the appearance of unveiled women in public places.

Oxfam Bookshop Herne Hill

Situated between the London boroughs of Southwark and Lambeth, Herne Hill first appears on maps as farm and woodland in 1798. The bookshop is located opposite Brockwell Park, home to the beautifully restored Art Deco Lido, originally built in 1937, and well situated for a stroll to Dulwich picture gallery. Also notable are the unique Velodrome, dating back to 1891 and redesigned in 1948 for the Olympic Games, the grade two listed Half Moon Pub boasts a Boxing Gym run by former European and British Champion, Clinton McKenzie and the Carnegie Library, one of over two thousand public libraries built by the Scottish-American businessman and philanthropist, Andrew Carnegie. Prominent among Herne Hill's most famous former residents are John Ruskin, the influential Victorian socialist thinker, art critic, poet and conservationist.
