Product description


“A stunning book that honestly confronts the continuingly difficult birth of post-Soviet Russia: dictatorship, economic collapse, and depopulation may still be in Russia’s future and much depends on oil. Bravo to Satter―a clear, troubling, brave work.”―Jim Woolsey, former CIA Director

“David Satter has written a compelling and provocative indictment of post-Soviet Russia. He grounds his stern judgment in years of his own reporting on real people’s experiences, and he brings to the task he has set himself a powerful intellect. This book is a major contribution to the debate over what has happened in Russia―and why, and what it means.”―Strobe Talbott, president, The Brookings Institution

Book Description

Anticipating a new dawn of freedom and democracy after the disintegration of the Soviet Union, Russians instead find themselves in a country desperately impoverished and controlled at every level by criminals. This compelling book views the 1990s reform period through the experiences of individual citizens, revealing staggering changes in Russian life, society, and ways of thinking.
