“Brilliant, real and readable.”

—former U.S. Secretary of State Madeleine Albright

A USA Today “New and Noteworthy” Book

Lisa Dickey traveled across the whole of Russia three times—in 1995, 2005 and 2015—making friends in eleven different cities, then coming back again and again to see how their lives had changed. Like the acclaimed British documentary series Seven Up!, she traces the ups and downs of ordinary people’s lives, in the process painting a deeply nuanced portrait of modern Russia.

From the caretakers of a lighthouse in Vladivostok, to the Jewish community of Birobidzhan, to a farmer in Buryatia, to a group of gay friends in Novosibirsk, to a wealthy “New Russian” family in Chelyabinsk, to a rap star in Moscow, Dickey profiles a wide cross-section of people in one of the most fascinating, dynamic and important countries on Earth. Along the way, she explores dramatic changes in everything from technology to social norms, drinks copious amounts of vodka, and learns firsthand how the Russians really feel about Vladimir Putin.

Including powerful photographs of people and places over time, and filled with wacky travel stories, unexpected twists, and keen insights, Bears in the Streets offers an unprecedented on-the-ground view of Russia today.

обложка книги Beyond Crimea Beyond Crimea

How will Russia redraw post-Soviet borders? In the wake of recent Russian expansionism, political risk expert Agnia Grigas illustrates how—for more than two decades—Moscow has consistently used its compatriots in bordering nations for its territorial ambitions. Demonstrating how this policy has been implemented in Ukraine and Georgia, Grigas provides cutting-edge analysis of the nature of Vladimir Putin's foreign policy and compatriot protection to warn that Moldova, Kazakhstan, the Baltic States, and others are also at risk.

обложка книги Black Wind, White Snow Black Wind, White Snow

Charles Clover, award-winning journalist and former Moscow bureau chief for the Financial Times, here analyses the idea of “Eurasianism,” a theory of Russian national identity based on ethnicity and geography. Clover traces Eurasianism’s origins in the writings of White Russian exiles in 1920s Europe, through Siberia’s Gulag archipelago in the 1950s, the dissolution of the Soviet Union in the early 1990s, and up to its steady infiltration of the governing elite around Vladimir Putin. This eye-opening analysis pieces together the evidence for Eurasianism’s place at the heart of Kremlin thinking today and explores its impact on recent events, the annexation of Crimea, the rise in Russia of anti-Western paranoia and imperialist rhetoric, as well as Putin’s sometimes perplexing political actions and ambitions.

Based on extensive research and dozens of interviews with Putin’s close advisers, this quietly explosive story will be essential reading for anyone concerned with Russia’s past century, and its future.

обложка книги Bobby Fischer Goes to War Bobby Fischer Goes to War

In the summer of 1972, with a presidential crisis stirring in the United States and the cold war at a pivotal point, two men—the Soviet world chess champion Boris Spassky and his American challenger Bobby Fischer—met in the most notorious chess match of all time. Their showdown in Reykjavik, Iceland, held the world spellbound for two months with reports of psychological warfare, ultimatums, political intrigue, cliffhangers, and farce to rival a Marx Brothers film.

Thirty years later, David Edmonds and John Eidinow, authors of the national bestseller Wittgenstein’s Poker, have set out to reexamine the story we recollect as the quintessential cold war clash between a lone American star and the Soviet chess machine—a machine that had delivered the world title to the Kremlin for decades. Drawing upon unpublished Soviet and U.S. records, the authors reconstruct the full and incredible saga, one far more poignant and layered than hitherto believed.

Against the backdrop of superpower politics, the authors recount the careers and personalities of Boris Spassky, the product of Stalin’s imperium, and Bobby Fischer, a child of post-World War II America, an era of economic boom at home and communist containment abroad. The two men had nothing in common but their gift for chess, and the disparity of their outlook and values conditioned the struggle over the board.

Then there was the match itself, which produced both creative masterpieces and some of the most improbable gaffes in chess history. And finally, there was the dramatic and protracted off-the-board battle—in corridors and foyers, in back rooms and hotel suites, in Moscow offices and in the White House.

The authors chronicle how Fischer, a manipulative, dysfunctional genius, risked all to seize control of the contest as the organizers maneuvered frantically to save it—under the eyes of the world’s press. They can now tell the inside story of Moscow’s response, and the bitter tensions within the Soviet camp as the anxious and frustrated apparatchiks strove to prop up Boris Spassky, the most un-Soviet of their champions—fun-loving, sensitive, and a free spirit. Edmonds and Eidinow follow this careering, behind-the-scenes confrontation to its climax: a clash that displayed the cultural differences between the dynamic, media-savvy representatives of the West and the baffled, impotent Soviets. Try as they might, even the KGB couldn’t help.

A mesmerizing narrative of brilliance and triumph, hubris and despair, Bobby Fischer Goes to War is a biting deconstruction of the Bobby Fischer myth, a nuanced study on the art of brinkmanship, and a revelatory cold war tragicomedy.

обложка книги Both Flesh and Not: Essays Both Flesh and Not: Essays

Brilliant, dazzling, never-before-collected nonfiction writings by "one of America's most daring and talented writers." (Los Angeles Times Book Review).

Both Flesh and Not gathers fifteen of Wallace's seminal essays, all published in book form for the first time.

Never has Wallace's seemingly endless curiosity been more evident than in this compilation of work spanning nearly 20 years of writing. Here, Wallace turns his critical eye with equal enthusiasm toward Roger Federer and Jorge Luis Borges; Terminator 2 and The Best of the Prose Poem; the nature of being a fiction writer and the quandary of defining the essay; the best underappreciated novels and the English language's most irksome misused words; and much more.

Both Flesh and Not restores Wallace's essays as originally written, and it includes a selection from his personal vocabulary list, an assembly of unusual words and definitions.

обложка книги By Fire: Writings on the Arab Spring By Fire: Writings on the Arab Spring

Tahar Ben Jelloun’s By Fire, the first fictional account published on the Arab Spring, reimagines the true-life self-immolation of Mohamed Bouazizi in Tunisia, an event that has been credited with setting off the Tunisian revolt. The novella depicts the days leading up to Bouazizi’s self-immolation. Ben Jelloun’s deliberate ambiguity about the location of the story, set in an unnamed Islamic country, allows the reader to imagine the experiences and frustrations of other young men who have endured physical violence and persecution in places beyond Tunisia. The tale begins and ends in fire, and the imagery of burning frames the political accounts in The Spark, Ben Jelloun’s nonfiction writings on the Tunisian events that provide insight into the despotic regimes that drove Bouazizi to such despair. Rita S. Nezami’s elegant translations and critical introduction provide the reader with multiple strategies for approaching these potent texts.

  •  Падения великих людей
     Кэппи Уилл
     Документальная литература, Публицистика, Юмор, Юмор

    Эта книга состоит из весьма своеобразных рассказов о бессмертных персонажах истории. Хеопс и Петр І, Екатерина Великая и Ганнибал, Александр Македонский и Клеопатра, Людовик XIV и Карл Великий, как и многие другие, неприкосновенные и почитаемые, предстают в них обыкновенными смертными – порой глуповатыми, совершающими ошибки, обворожительными в своих слабостях и пороках, но все же выдающимися людьми. Такой неожиданный взгляд на давно устоявшиеся представления, а порой противоречащий сведениям из учебников, заставляет по-новому оценить свои знания.

  •  Психология религии. Факты и мысли.
     Платонов Константин Константинович
     Наука, Образование, Психология, Религиоведение, Документальная литература, Публицистика

    В жизни верующего человека большое место занимают религиозные эмоции, переживания. Проповедники религии умело используют психические переживания человека, уводя его в мир религиозных иллюзий, часто используют те или иные особенности человеческой психики для вовлечения людей в лоно церкви. Поэтому так важно изучение религиозной психологии. Книга видного советского психолога заслуженного деятеля науки профессора К.К. Платонова и посвящена важным моментам религиозной психологии. Книга не представляет собой систематического изложения предмета психологии религии. Как и в «Занимательной психологии», в своей новой работе К.К. Платонов приводит массу очень поучительных и интересных фактов и делится своими мыслями, которые возникают в связи с тем или иным явлением религиозной психологии.

    Книгу с пользой прочтут не только пропагандисты и люди, интересующиеся проблемами научного атеизма и психологии, но и верующие читатели.

  •  Мужчина всегда прав
     Сардаров Амиран
     Домоводство (Дом и семья), Эротика, Секс, Документальная литература, Публицистика

    Эта книга поможет ребятам, начинающим свой путь самца, а также тем, которые уже наломали дров и никак не могут понять, как правильно и эффективно взаимодействовать с женщинами, как общаться, строить отношения и соблазнять. Как правильно понимать женщин: те или иные «выкидоны», о чём они говорят и что с ними делать.

  •  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
  •  Исповедь сталинского поколения. Отклики на судебный процесс И.Т. Шеховцова, фильм «Очищение» и книгу «Дело Сталина-„преступника“ и его защитника»
     Гагут Л Д
     Документальная литература, Публицистика

    Иван Тимофеевич Шеховцов получил известность не только в Советском Союзе, но и за рубежом в связи с состоявшимися в 1988–1990 гг. в Москве судебными процессами, на которых он, солдат Великой Отечественной войны, защищал честь и достоинство поколения сталинской эпохи и своего Верховного Главнокомандующего И. В. Сталина. Искусство разоблачения лжи, основанное на многолетней работе в качестве следователя, прокурора и адвоката обеспечивало ему превосходство в схватке с клеветниками и перевертышами.

    Как «защитник Сталина», он был в период антисталинской истерии в «демократических» СМИ подвергнут травле и моральному террору. О драматических, порой имевших детективный характер событиях, связанных с судебными процессами, он рассказал в четырех томах написанной им книги «Дело Сталина-„преступника“ и его защитника», получившей высокую оценку читателей.

    В этой книге приведены отклики людей на судебные процессы, снятый по ним фильм «Очищение» и книгу И. Т. Шеховцова, а также бесценные свидетельства очевидцев об этом непростом периоде нашей истории, о боли униженного и оклеветанного ПОКОЛЕНИЯ СТАЛИНСКОЙ ЭПОХИ.
