'Fascinating... One of the most astute political commentators on Putin and modern Russia' Financial Times 'An amazing achievement' Peter Frankopan Can anyone truly understand Russia? Let one of the world's leading experts show you how, using the fascinating history of a nation to illuminate its future. Russia is a country with no natural borders, no single ethos, no true central identity. At the crossroads of Europe and Asia, it is everyone's 'other'. And yet it is one of the most powerful nations on earth, a master game-player on the global stage with a rich history of war and peace, poets and revolutionaries. In this essential whistle-stop tour of the world's most complex nation, Mark Galeotti takes us behind the myths to the heart of the Russian story: from the formation of a nation to its early legends - including Ivan the Terrible and Catherine the Great - to the rise and fall of the Romanovs, the Russian Revolution, the Cold War, Chernobyl and the end of the Soviet Union - plus the rise of a politician named Vladimir Putin.

Recensioner i media

This is terrific - and an amazing achievement to cover so much ground in such a short and wonderfully readable book. * Peter Frankopan * An informative, perceptive and exhilarating canter through 1,000 tumultuous years * The Spectator * Highly recommended, even if you are no novice when it comes to Russian history. Mark sets the golden standard for engaging prose, too. * Dimitar Bechev, Fellow of the Atlantic Council Europe Centre, Oxford University *
