обложка книги Young Stalin Young Stalin

Stalin, like Hitler, remains the very personification of evil but also one of the creators of today’s world. Now in an enthralling biography that reads like a thriller, Simon Sebag Montefiore unveils the shadowy, adventurous journey of the Georgian cobbler’s son who became the Red Tsar.

* * *

What makes a Stalin? Was he illegitimate? Was his mother whore or saint? Was Stalin a Tsarist agent or Lenin’s chief gangster? Was his most notorious heist planned during his stay in London? Was he to blame for his wife’s death? If he really missed the 1917 Revolution, how did he emerge so powerful?

Born in poverty, scarred by his upbringing, exceptional in his studies, this charismatic but dangerous boy was hailed as a romantic poet and trained as a priest but found his mission as fanatical revolutionary. He became the mastermind of bank-robberies, protection-rackets, arson, piracy and murder yet he was, uniquely, part-intellectual, part-brigand. Surprisingly, he is also revealed as a scandalously prolific lover, leaving a trail of mistresses (varying from schoolgirls to noblewomen) and illegitimate children.

Here is the arch-conspirator and escape-artist whose brutal ingenuity so impressed Lenin that he made Stalin (with Trotsky) his top henchman. The paranoid underworld of Joseph Conrad-style terrorism was Stalin’s natural habitat. Montefiore shows how clannish Caucasian banditry and murderous gangsterism, combined with pitiless ideology, qualified Stalin to dominate the Kremlin—and create the USSR in his flawed image.

Based on massive research and astonishing new evidence in archives from Moscow to Georgia, Young Stalin, companion and prequel to bestselling, prizewinning Stalin: The Court of the Red Tsar, is a chronicle of the Revolution, a pre-history of the USSR—and a fascinatingly intimate biography: this is how Stalin became Stalin.

обложка книги Yeltsin Yeltsin

Even after his death in April 2007, Boris Yeltsin remains the most controversial figure in recent Russian history. Although Mikhail Gorbachev presided over the decline of the Communist party and the withdrawal of Soviet control over eastern Europe, it was Yeltsin—Russia’s first elected president—who buried the Soviet Union itself. Upon taking office, Yeltsin quickly embarked on a sweeping makeover of newly democratic Russia, beginning with a program of excruciatingly painful market reforms that earned him wide acclaim in the West and deep recrimination from many Russian citizens.

In this, the first biography of Yeltsin’s entire life, Soviet scholar Timothy Colton traces Yeltsin’s development from a peasant boy in the Urals to a Communist party apparatchik, and then ultimately to a nemesis of the Soviet order. Based on unprecedented interviews with Yeltsin himself as well as scores of other Soviet officials, journalists, and businessmen, Colton explains how and why Yeltsin broke with single-party rule and launched his drive to replace it with democracy.

Yeltsin’s colossal attempt to bring democracy to Russia remains one of the great, unfinished stories of our time. As anti-Western policies and rhetoric resurface in Putin’s increasingly bellicose Russia, Yeltsin offers essential insights into the past, present, and future of this vast and troubled nation.

обложка книги Yonder: Essays Yonder: Essays

Sparkling essays on a variety of subjects-literature, art, popular culture, autobiography-by a renowned young American novelist.

In her brilliant and daring novels The Blindfold and The Enchantment of Lily Dahl, Siri Hustvedt has won critical acclaim and a rapidly expanding international audience. But she is also a wide-ranging essayist and critic, frequently reexamining in her fascinating nonfiction many of the central leitmotifs of her fiction.

The six pieces in Yonder, Hustvedt's first book of essays, are all meditations on the complex relationship between art and the world. They include a personal essay on memory and place, which investigates the images we retain from our lives, the lives of others in the world, and the lives of characters in books. In "Vermeer's Annunciation," Hustvedt gives an entirely original interpretation of the Vermeer painting Woman with a Pearl Necklace. In "Ghosts at the Table," she examines the essence of still life as a genre in painting from Cotan and Chardin to Philip Guston. Other essays include a profound piece about Dickens, a reassessment of The Great Gatsby, and a witty and provocative assault on contemporary pieties entitled "A Plea for Eros."

обложка книги [you] Ruined It for Everyone! [you] Ruined It for Everyone!

Energy sources are massively depleted. The government is wasteful and incompetent. The economy is imploding, the environment is toxic, and international terrorism threatens our day-to-day lives. And gum sucks. It just sucks. Who is responsible? Who made our world so dangerous, so unlivable, so stupid?

Matthew Vincent is unafraid to name names. Who’s to blame for the three-ounce rule on airplanes? Who came up with the bright idea of branding every single sports stadium? Who made curling an Olympic event? Which pope made celibacy mandatory? Who invented daylight saving time? (Who doesn’t hate daylight saving time?)

Here’s a book that’ll tell you who invented every unnecessary, annoying gadget that plagues modern life and haunts your dreams. It’s a book to keep in your bathroom for perusal before you end up having to drink out of your toilet bowl because there’s no potable water left in your hemisphere. Here’s a book that’ll tell you who ruined it for everyone.

Praise for [you] Ruined It for Everyone!

“An uproariously funny, ad-hoc cultural history of humanity’s ability to ruin just about everything.”

—Christian Lander, author of Stuff White People Like

“A terrific resource for the armchair finger pointer.”

—Joshua Piven, author of The Worst-Case Scenario Survival Handbook

  •  Putin's Praetorians
     Butler Phil
     Документальная литература, Публицистика

    Putin’s Praetorians contains the stories of some of the people involved in a unique movement to debunk those who would demonize Russia in general and Putin in particular. The “confessions” of those labeled as “Kremlin Trolls” reveal the psychology behind one of the most effective social crusading moments in history.

    The colorful personalities and passionate stories in the book also reveal a largely unspoken truth about Vladimir Putin — the real reasons why so many admire and support Russia’s leader. The combination of contributions from some of the Internet’s most famous and influential media stars, combined with stories from typical Internet aficionados blows holes in the foundations of Russiagate.

    “Today a war against freedom of the press is being waged by the self-described guardians of democracy. Too few grasp the danger of this war. The book of Phil Butler could open your eyes…”

    — F. William Engdahl, author, Manifest Destiny: Democracy as Cognitive Dissonance

    “This book blows up the Russiagate conspiracy and debunks the whole idea that the internet revolution against the demonization of Russia is anything other than a spontaneous popular reaction against what is demonstrably a pack of lies.”

    — Charles Bausman — Editor and Publisher of Russia Insider

    “Why does the Kremlin need trolls when Google, who everybody gives permission to track all of their internet activity, claims to know what you are going to do before you do? Do you really think anyone but an Intelligence agency would have built such a vehicle?”

    — Jim W. Dean — Managing Editor of Veterans Today
