Tom Parfitt – High Caucasus

by Jeremy Bassetti

Tom Parfitt joins me on the podcast to talk about his book High Caucasus (Headline 2023).

Tom and I have a sober conversation about the 2004 Beslan School Massacre, his reporting in Russia, and his 1,000-mile walk across the Caucasus in southern Russia. I also ask Tom about Ukraine, and his commonly held assumptions or ideas about the people of the Caucasus.
