Reviews

"This book thoroughly analyses the dramatic and disturbing changes Russia has seen in the past twelve months. The country has become sharply more authoritarian, more nationalist, and more hostile to the West. Only by understanding Russia can we respond intelligently to it. This book is an important contribution." - Sir Anthony Russell Brenton, KCMG, British Ambassador to Russia, 2004 08

"This brilliant - and concise - book by leading experts answers the two most important questions about Russia. Why did it take a dramatic and aggressive new course early in 2014? And what are the implications for the rest of the world? Vital reading for anyone seeking to understand Russia since the annexation of Crimea - and what might come next." - Neil Buckley, Eastern Europe Editor, Financial Times, UK

"At a time when understanding Russia's politics is more crucial than ever, this volume by some of the country's top analysts provides an invaluable guide to the complex changes afoot since the annexation of Crimea. A brilliant interpretation of a rapidly moving target." - Daniel Treisman, Professor of Political Science, University of California, Los Angeles, USA
