Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0615559018, Paperback)This seminal book totally debunks the mainstream story about Alexander Litvinenko. He is the reputed former KGB spy who was murdered in 2006 on orders of Vladimir Putin. Author William Dunkerley methodically proves that storyline to be a hoax.
Dunkerley goes headline-by-headline through media reports and shows clearly that they do not correspond with known facts.
Just months after Litvinenko's death, Dunkerley was commissioned by the International Federation of Journalists to investigate and analyze the media coverage of this case. It was a big job. The accusation that Russian president Vladimir Putin had ordered Litvinenko's death had emerged as a news bombshell. It propelled top headlines globally for a long time to come.
The Phony Litvinenko Murder contains the details of Dunkerley's extensive research. The surprising analytical conclusion he reached is that the worldwide media reports don't match the facts. That's why this book is named The Phony Litvinenko Murder.
Litvinenko's famous deathbed allegation of Putin's culpability is just one example. Dunkerley shows that it was a hoax. The hoaxer has even confessed that the words were his, not Litvinenko's. You'll see more hard-hitting analysis like this in the book.
Dunkerley explains through concrete example how gross fabrications concocted by very sophisticated political enemies of Putin's were successfully turned into the mainstream storyline that still predominates in the news. This book covers not only the period immediately following Litvinenko's death, but the five ensuing years, as well.
With the Litvinenko story still popping up in the news, The Phony Litvinenko Murder is a must read. It will help you to understand who you can believe and who you can't. You'll see the method of fabrication that was employed. And you can use all that insight in trying to understand and make sense out of any new media reports.
