InRUSSIANS, Gregory Feifer explains the seeming paradoxes of Russian life by unraveling the nature of its people: what is it in their history, their desires, and their conception of themselves that makes them baffling to the West? Using the insights of his eight years as a journalist in Russia, Feifer corrects pervasive misconceptions about the country by showing that much of what appears inexplicable is actually logical when seen from the inside. He gets to the heart of why the world's leading energy producer continues to exasperate many in the international community. And he makes clear why President Vladimir Putin remains popular even as the gap widens between the super-rich and the great majority of poor. Drawing on his family history as well as formative experiences in Russia's past and illustrative workings of its culture, Feifer sheds much-needed light on the purposely hidden functioning of its society before, during and after communism.RUSSIANSis an expertly observed, gripping profile of a people who will continue challenging the West for the foreseeable future.
