Between Two Fires: Truth, Ambition, and Compromise in Putin's Russia

by Joshua Yaffa - £9.99  Granta Books (2021)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781783783724 | ISBN 10: 1783783729

SHORTLISTED FOR THE ORWELL PRIZE FOR POLITICAL WRITING
 
In this penetrating exploration of contemporary Russia, Joshua Yaffa meets a variety of Russians - from politicians and entrepreneurs to artists and historians - who have built their careers and constructed their identities in the shadow of the Putin system. Torn between their own ambitions and the omnipresent demands of the state, each has found that compromise is essential for survival and success.
 
Between Two Fires is an intimate and probing portrait of a nation much discussed but little understood, and an urgent lesson about the nature of modern authoritarianism.
