- Eye Opening
Thirty million Russians live outside Russia – but not beyond the reach of the Kremlin. In a series of compelling stories, respected Moscow-based journalists Andrei Soldatov and Irina Borogan explore the past century of Russian history through the lens of its community of expatriates, examining the complex connections between Russian émigrés and their mother country. Soldatov and Borogan’s eye-opening text provides an essential piece of the puzzle for serious students of Russian politics today, as well as a ripping, spy-novelesque tale of espionage, loyalty, betrayal, romance and patriotism.
