This was a fascinating read by an author who clearly knows his stuff. I found it one of those books that I couldn't wait to carry-on reading. Not long after finishing it, I noticed a couple of seemingly unlinked news items that made me realise just how naive we in the West (well, the UK anway)are. One concerned a move by the EU to introduce very restrictive rules hat would hamper shale-gas extraction within the EU. Nothing to do with Russia you might think? Read this and think again. If you're interested in this kind of international politico-journalism, then this will be a rewarding book.
