The Future Is History - How Totalitarianism Reclaimed Russia
Award-winning journalist and Putin biographer Masha Gessen's understanding of the forces that have wracked Russia is unparalleled. Here she follows the lives of four people born at what promised to be the dawn of democracy. Each came of age with unprecedented expectations, some as offspring of the very architects of the new Russia. Gessen charts their paths against the machinations of the regime that would crush them all.
