Red Famine book cover
Red Famine
Stalin's War on Ukraine
Anne Applebaum - 2017-10-10
Рейтинг Goodreads
A shocking and revelatory history of Stalin's devastating policy of agricultural collectivization, which led to one of the deadliest famines in European history. At least five million people died between 1931 and 1933 in the USSR, with more than three million of those deaths deliberately inflicted on Ukrainians. Anne Applebaum's Red Famine documents the horror of ordinary people struggling to survive extraordinary evil and shows how it may foreshadow a new threat to the political order in the twenty-first century.

It's a great book, and like mine on Putin it would be nice if people were reading it for history instead of current events!      источник

Вся королевская рать book cover
Вся королевская рать
Robert Penn Warren - 1996-09-01 (впервые опубликовано в 1946)
Рейтинг Goodreads
Злая, бесконечно остроумная и насмешливая препарация "политической кухни" избирательной кампании в глухом южном штате. Сейчас — больше чем полстолетия спустя после его создания — роман воспринимается так, словно ом был создан вчера. Пиар и "черный" пиар. Подкуп, шантаж и война компроматов. Сговор, подтасовка, слив информации... Эта книга актуальна и теперь!
Garry Kasparov
Good article on the valuable lessons about the politics of resentment from a great book (and film), All the King's Men, one of my favorites, on its 75th anniversary.      источник

A fun and insightful read. Sometimes you just want to read a book to enjoy, and other times you want to book to make you think. Every once in while you get to do both!      источник
The Reformer book cover
The Reformer
How One Liberal Fought to Preempt the Russian Revolution
Stephen F. Williams - 2017-12-05
Рейтинг Goodreads
This book explores the political landscape of Russia in 1917, where moderates sought liberal reform and a constitutional monarchy. Vasily Maklakov, a prominent lawyer and public intellectual, was one of the strongest advocates for the rule of law and the face of liberalism. His story offers a cautionary tale and a guide for modern movements seeking to liberalize authoritarian countries. Despite never being a cabinet member or head of his political party, Maklakov was deeply involved in most political events of the period, standing between the absolute extremes and advocating for a myriad of reforms.
Garry Kasparov
A very interesting book, and Vasily Maklakov definitely deserves to be remembered and considered today, when the idea of a liberal, modern Russia seems far-fetched.      источник
A Very Expensive Poison book cover
A Very Expensive Poison
The Assassination of Alexander Litvinenko and Putin's War with the West
Luke Harding - 2016-02-11
Рейтинг Goodreads
A true story of corruption and revenge, A Very Expensive Poison follows the life and death of Alexander Litvinenko, who was brazenly poisoned in central London with a rare, highly radioactive substance. Author Luke Harding, who spent a decade reporting on the story and interviewing those closest to the events, argues that Litvinenko's assassination marked the beginning of a new Cold War with Russia, and delves into the involvement of the Russian state and its powerful enemies. A shocking tale of subterfuge and tragedy, this book is a must-read for fans of true crime and political thrillers.
Garry Kasparov
Yes, from Luke Harding's excellent book "A Very Expensive Poison," which I recently recommended. To Trump!      источник

Garry Kasparov
An endgame book should be more about having well-structured reference for continuous study based on level. For some of my @masterclass examples I used the endgame book by Dvoretsky. More basic material in Lamprecht/Muller and Nunn.      источник

Красный циркуляр
Правдивая история о больших деньгах, убийстве, борьбе за cправедливость и о том, как я стал личным врагом Путина
Bill Browder - 2015-02-03
Рейтинг Goodreads
Ноябрь 2009 года. В одиночной, промозглой камере московского изолятора, было обнаружено истерзанное побоями восьми охранников, бездыханное тело, тяжело больного юриста - Сергея Магнитского. В чем было его преступление? - Разоблачение коррумпированных должностных лиц МВД, причастных к хищению из российского бюджета 230 миллионов долларов налогов, уплаченных ранее одним из самых успешных в мире инвестиционных фондов. И по сей день виновные в этом жестоком убийстве остаются безнаказанными. Последующий постыдный посмертный судебный процесс над юристом воспринят международным сообществом как акт средневекового мракобесия путинского режима. Красный циркуляр – книга разоблачение масштабного сокрытия правды и следов совершенных преступлений российской властью в отношении Сергея Магнитского – его незаконный арест и убийство - проникает глубоко в Кремль, вскрывая неприглядную правду о режиме. Билл Браудер – инвестиционный управляющий и клиент Магнитского – погружает нас в головокружительный мир финансов Нью-Йорка и Лондона 90-х годов, его схватку с российскими олигархами в постсоветской Москве и последующее выдворение из России по указанию Путина (Кремля). Автору удается на фактах показать сращивание российской власти с криминалом, где грани настолько размыты, что уже невозможно отличить одного от другого. Под влиянием произошедшего мы наблюдает трансформацию человека (автора) из финансиста в правозащитника, ведущего кампанию за установление справедливости в отношении своего покойного адвоката и друга. Красный циркуляр – нещадно оголяет то, от чего страдает сегодняшняя Россия - взяточничество, коррупция, мошенничество, пытки и убийство каждого, кто оказался на пути развратной власти. Книга шокирует нас откровениями о политических механизмах работы в высших эшелонах власти на Западе.
