Overview

Praise for Out of the Red

"As someone who served in the trenches with John Connor during the formation of the Russian securities market, I can recommend this book. His insights into the important companies and key actors on the Russian market will be invaluable to potential investors."
—Charles E. Ryan, CEO, Deutsche Bank Russia

"A must read—stimulating, provocative, and just plain fun."
—Eugene K. Lawson, President, U.S.-Russia Business Council

"Out of the Red provides a compelling corrective to the deafening drumbeat that has contributed to the negative image of Putin's Russia in the United States. It should be a compulsory read for journalists and policymakers alike."
—Padma Desai, Harriman Professor of Economics and Director,

Center for Transition Economies, Columbia University

"Given that share prices for many Russian companies have increased significantly since the 1998 crash, potential foreign investors (and for that matter, even some Russian investors) often find themselves unable to learn anything about what Russian companies do and who the personalities are. Out of the Red provides much of that information. Those who invest in Russian companies without first having consulted Out of the Red do so at their own risk."
—Marshall I. Goldman, Davis Center for Russian and Eurasian Studies,

Harvard University

"John Connor has written a stimulating—dare I say controversial—account of where Russia is headed. A successful investor himself, Connor has for the past two decades quite literally put his money where his mouth is. His insider's analysis on the risks and rewards of investing in Russia provides a valuable check list on the challenges and opportunities facing Western business, as does his candid, always colorful description of Russian business and Russian businessmen."
—Toby T. Gati, Senior Advisor, Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld LLP

"For those considering investments in Russian securities, John Connor's book is a godsend. I know of no other work that describes so well the companies offering securities to investors in the Russian stock market. Both readable and concise, it provides just the sort of information potential investors need to have."
—Jack F. Matlock, Jr., former U.S. Ambassador to the USSR, Special Assistant for

National Security to President Ronald Reagan
