    If you're looking for a book on the far right in contemporary Russia which is not only focused on Putin, and which provides historical context, this is a very good place to start. It's written in a journalistic style, includes interviews with key players, avoids hyperbole and sensation...

    Ten years ago, any symmetrical scheme with an appearance of order - dialectical materialism, anti-Semitism, Nazism - was enough to hold mankind in thrall. Why not submit to Tln, to the immense, meticulous evidence of an ordered planet? It is useless to reply that the real world too i...

    A worthwhile and clearly well-researched account of the rise of nationalist views in Russia today. Despite the ambitious undertaking, the transition between the author's associations of previous and current players, beginning in 20th century Russia, and their impact with Kremlin thinki...

    There is no doubt that Russian authors were, and still are, not short of material on which they can draw on extensively for their novels; some of it in epic proportions. The content of Black Wind, White Snow reinforces this opinion. Although a non-fiction book, it reads like a sweep...

    Clover deftly ties together the various iterations of Eurasianism, combining Imperial, Soviet, and contemporary Russian versions into a cohesive narrative that is equal parts grounded history and journalistic flair. Should be required reading for all academics who study Russian politic...

    This was an interesting account of a political philosophy which in recent years has gained increasing purchase. The book does a lot to explain the intellectual background and development of the Euraisianist and modern Russian Nationalist thought starting from the time of the Revolution...

    A very insightful analysis of where Russia is today, given historical trends. Clover does a masterful job in explaining the rise of nationalism in Russia, and how it has come to be the centerpiece of current Russian political ideology. It helps explain much of what is happening in the ...

    Russia is an intriguing country. Possibly because of her Soviet past, closed society and culture of secrecy propagated by the country's establishment. However, when she opened her gates in 1990s all hell broke loose and the country ended up making certain Billionaires who were later re...

    First off, Clover's book is about as close to an un-biased portrait of Putin's Russia as I have encountered. Whether discussing the Crimean situation or the U.S. military base in Kyrgyzstan, Clover presents all perspectives and cites sources from both sides. Granted, towards the end he...

    A story of how vacuum spells an ambitious yet hollow sound of civilization building Russian history is full of hollow points. Bereft of filling due to constant strife, war, tension, revolutions, subversions of rule - it was closed by totalitarian might, fueled by rage of the man mad...
