Product description

Review

‘[Meier’s] knowledge of the country and his abiding love for its people stands out on every page of this book, making his journey through Russia after the fall an informed and scrupulously researched one.’ Economist

‘“Black Earth” is the best investigation of post-Soviet Russia since David Remnick’s “Resurrection”. Andrew Meier is a truly penetrating eyewitness.’ Robert Conquest

‘If President Bush were to read only the chapters on Chechnya in Meier’s “Black Earth”, he would gain a priceless education about Putin’s Russia.’ Zbigniew Brzezinski

‘That “Black Earth” is an extraordinary work is, for anyone who has known Russia, beyond question.’ George Kennan

‘From the pointless war in Chechnya to the wild, exhilarating and dispriting East and the rise of Vladimir Putin, the former KGB officer – it’s all here in great detail, written with insight, passion and genuine affection.’ Michael Specter, New Yorker and co-chief of New York Times Moscow bureau

‘An engrossing, beautifully written book about a country where “the death of an ideology has displaced millions”…Heartbreaking.’ Publishers’ Weekly

About the Author

Andrew Meier graduated from Oxford University in 1989. In 1996 he was awarded the Alicia Patterson Fellowship to report on the ethnic conflicts in the former Soviet Union. He is now Moscow correspondent for Time and writes extensively for the New York Times, Washington Post, New Republic, Harpers, Wired. He also reports for both PBS and NPR.
