    Great Depth

    The dumbest thing about this book is the subtitle, ¿A Journey Through Russia....¿ To most that sounds like some superficial travelog and if that is what you are looking for, this book certainly will not rate better than a single star. Meier has done in-depth journalistic studies of the people and politicians of Moscow, Chechnya, Norilsk, the infamous Gulag city,Vladivostok and Sakhalin, and St. Petersburg. The book does its best to describ the ¿riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma,¿ as Churchill described Russia. Meier shows us that the Russian people are sweet, kind, industrious, lazy, destructive, horrible and desperate. The most valuable lesson may be in his investigation of Chechnya and the terrible waste that has occurred there.
