Overview
Anticipating a new dawn of freedom after the disintegration of the Soviet Union, Russians could hardly have foreseen the reality of their future a decade later: a country impoverished and controlled at every level by organized crime.

"The Russia that Satter depicts in this brave, engaging book cannot be ignored. Darkness at Dawn should be required reading for anyone interested in the post-Soviet state."--Christian Caryl, Newsweek

"Satter must be commended for saying what a great many people only dare to think."--Matthew Brzezinski, Toronto Globe and Mail

"Humane and articulate."--Raymond Asquith, Spectator

"Vivid, impeccably researched and truly frightening. . . . Western policy-makers, especially in Washington, would do well to study these pages."--Martin Sieff, United Press International
