Product description


"Vladimir Yakunin, a former Putin insider and loyalist, has broken the Kremlin code of silence and gives an incomparable lowdown on life and politics at the top." -- --Robert Service, Emeritus Professor of Russian History, St Antony s College, Oxford

"It is not often one gets a deep insight from a Kremlin insider who has remained independent of the Kremlin. Yakunin has been a KGB man, a Russian Minister and boss of Russian Railways. He has been a colleague of Putin but is a candid one. He is well worth reading." -- -- Malcolm Rifkind, Foreign Secretary 1992 1997

"A vivid and sharp account of a major page of Russian history, aiming at building bridges between cultures." -- Dominique de Villepin, Prime Minister of France 2005 2007

"Having worked with Vladimir Yakunin at the UIC, I deeply appreciate this honest and important testimony of his long career in business and politics. The Treacherous Path is also a transmission of shared human values; the clear and open vision of an Honnête Homme a railwayman hitching his wagon to a star." -- --JP Loubinoux, executive director of the UIC (International Union of Railways)

About the Author

Vladimir Yakunin was trained as a rocket engineer at the Leningrad Mechanical Institute, later moving to New York, where he served as a diplomat and an intelligence officer for the KGB. After the fall of the Soviet Union, he became a minister in the Transport and Railway ministries and was later appointed CEO of Russian Railways, a state-owned company responsible for over 85,000 kilometres of track and more than a million workers. Today he combines his role as chairman of the Dialogue of Civilizations, an NGO dedicated to promoting intercultural dialogue, with his post as chair of political science at Lomonosov Moscow State University.
