This was a great read.
As someone who's worked in a related field and dealt with many of the issues and some of the events that Mr. Roxburgh tackles, I found the book not just enlightening but also engaging, well-written and witty. I found myself smiling and cringing, thinking of the situations he covers and their relevance on the world stage. I often found myself jealous of the author's privileged place to experience Russia and the government, but he conveys his insight in a thought-provoking manner.
A must for any Russophile but also for students of history and politics or for anyone who wants a good book (and what a great cover!).
