• Can anyone truly understand Russia? Let one of the world's leading experts show you how, using the fascinating history of a nation to illuminate its future.

    Russia is a country with no natural borders, no single ethnos, no true central identity. At the crossroads of Europe and Asia, it is everyone's 'other'. And yet it is one of the most powerful nations on earth, a master game-player on the global stage with a rich history of war and peace, poets and revolutionaries.

    In this essential whistle-stop tour of the world's most misunderstood nation, Mark Galeotti takes us behind the myths to the heart of the Russian story: from the formation of a nation to its early legends - including Ivan the Terrible and Catherine the Great - to the rise and fall of the Romanovs, the Russian Revolution, the Cold War, Chernobyl and the end of the Soviet Union - plus the arrival of an obscure politician named Vladimir Putin.

  • Meet the world's most dangerous man.

    Who is the real Vladimir Putin? What does he want? And what will he do next?

    Despite the millions of words written on Putin's Russia, the West still fails to truly understand one of the world's most powerful politicians, whose influence spans the globe and whose networks of power reach into the very heart of our daily lives.

    In this essential primer, Professor Mark Galeotti uncovers the man behind the myth, addressing the key misperceptions of Putin and explaining how we can decipher his motivations and next moves. From Putin's early life in the KGB and his real relationship with the USA to his vision for the future of Russia - and the world - Galeotti draws on new Russian sources and explosive unpublished accounts to give unparalleled insight into the man at the heart of global politics.

  • De quelle Russie Poutine est-il le maître ? Pour unifier ce peuple pluriel conquis tour à tour par les Vikings et les Mongols, sans véritable frontière naturelle, aussi européen qu'asiatique, la Russie a fait de ses multiples influences son identité propre, quitte à en forger les légendes.
    Mais, en jouant de ce passé, elle s'est enfermée et contrainte dans ses rapports au monde extérieur. Telle est la thèse de Mark Galeotti qui, tout en relatant avec brio son histoire en quelques chapitres enlevés, nous donne les clés pour comprendre ce pays-continent. Une réflexion passionnante et jamais coupée de l'actuelle Russie.
