The book is a great example of a partnership between Russian and American experts. It provides a comprehensive and an independent view on Russia's mid-term and long-term challenges. While the book's conclusions are often controversial, it is a must read for everybody interested in the future of Russia.--Arkady Dvorkovich, aide to the President of the Russian Federation
