Hedrick Smith, a long-time journalist of Washington and foreign affairs, has articulated the pre and post Cold War story of Russia's people like nobody could. Smith goes beyond the political headlines and conveys dozens of individuals' stories and how they were impacted. Followers of Russian affairs are well aware of the historic strife in places like Nagorno-Karabakh, but Smith, after grazing over the elementary roots of the conflicts history, talks to teachers and business people, Christians and Muslims, young folks and old, and trumpets their stories, their hardship, their hopes and their fears. Smith's eloquent use of language only bolsters his Pulitizer Prize ability to tell consistently intriguing stories. This is unquestionably a recommended work that is an educational joy ride.
