Overview

An insider's perspective on present day Russian politics and ideology

While there are many books published in English about Russia, the vast majority of them are written from the perspective of Western academics and journalists. Very few studies are conducted by people who live at the frontiers of this newly constituted Russian empire, under the leadership of Vladamir Putin. Face to Face with Russia offers this critical perspective to English-speaking audiences worldwide.
