5.0 out of 5 stars Shortlisted for the Orwell Prize 2010, 26 May 2010
This review is from: Rebel Land: Among Turkey's Forgotten Peoples (Paperback)
'This journey to Eastern Turkey and the town of Varto where de Bellaigue lived becomes an examination of the way crises and ethnic wars develop where people care deeply about land and spill blood to avoid extinction. De Bellaigue makes the investigation personal and layered; he does not shrink from the obstructions thrown up by bureaucrats or taciturn witnesses; he dares to show the attractive and repellent sides of the participants in these bitter struggles between Turks, Kurds and Armenians. In a region where so much of the past is blurred by denial, this book gives us much greater understanding.'

The Orwell Prize is Britain's most prestigious prize for political writing. The Book Prize judges for 2010 were Jonathan Heawood (director, English PEN), Andrew Holgate (literary editor, Sunday Times) and Francine Stock (writer and broadcaster).
