Product description

Review

'Indispensable' -- Guardian

'[From] a brave and eloquent critic of the Putin regime... For anyone wondering how Russia ended up in the hands of Putin and his friends, and what it means for the rest of us, Gessen's book gives us an alarming and convincing picture' -- The Times

'A powerful case, arguing that Putin reconstituted the political and terror apparatus of the Soviet state and that ideology was the last block to fall into place' -- Financial Times

'A provocative new book [where] Gessen ably weaves [the four protagonists'] lives into a gripping, if grim tapestry' --Economist

The Future is History is a beautifully-written, sensitively-argued and cleverly-structured journey through Russia's failure to build democracy... If you want to truly understand why Vladimir Putin has been able to so dominate his country, this book will help you' ---- Oliver Bullough
