Summary: "What is different [here] is the personal and family history at its core. Instead of attempting a conventional sketch of Kremlin politics, Harding focuses on the harassment he encountered in Russia - and the result is a gripping tale. [and an] enthralling denunciation."--Robert Service, author of Trotsky "A courageous and explosive expose of the "corrupt nexus at the heart of the Russian state."--Orlando Figes, author of Natasha''s Dance "The importance of Luke Harding''s book lies in its first-hand account of a relatively mild but telling bout of statement sponsored harassment, of a kind that, like much else in Russia, is intentionally opaque and deniable.The WikiLeaks files endorse the summary of the fictional Moscow correspondent in my novel, Snowdrops, who says that, in Russia, there are no politics or business stories: "There are only crime stories."--AD Miller, author of the Booker-shortlisted novel Snowdrops , The Guardian "Russia laid bare in an absorbing account of four years spent as head of the Guardian''s Moscow bureau. There is now a vast literature describing the hard reality of Putin''s Russia, but what Harding adds to our awareness is a sense of what it is like to live that reality every day. He does this by relating tragedies and absurdities through a series of vivid and often moving encounters. The author''s descriptive powers and his insights into the mentality and techniques of Putinism are enough to make Mafia State an essential read."--David Clark, New Statesman "Harding''s reportorial talents capture colour and character to illustrate demographic decay, the war in Georgia and the noxious world of the thuggish pro-Putin youth movements.Putin''s personal wealth (another good story) is taboo in Russia''s mainstream media, but much discussed elsewhere. More sizzling were his pieces (now chapters) drawn from WikiLeaks. It is nice to know that American diplomats are such diligent and caustic observers of Russia''s slide into what Harding rightly calls a "mafia state". It is a pity that their political masters in Washington, DC ignore what they are told. With Putin set to be in charge for 12 more years, it is high time that the outside world woke up to the true nature of the system he has created: astonishingly corrupt and incompetent, and also (as the Hardings discovered) thuggishly xenophobic."--Edward Lucas, The Observer "As one of the authors of the Guardian''s book on the WikiLeaks trove, Harding was nicely positioned to cull material about ''the corrupt nexus at the heart of the Russian state''.Peeking into the FSB''s cabinet of cloaks and daggers, Harding discovers hapless spooks who seem to have strayed off the set of a Cold War play that, unknown to them, was mothballed two decades ago."--Stephen Holmes, London Review of Books "Uncertainty, fear and understandable paranoia permeate this book. But this does not cloud the analysis. Harding''s description of the rise of Russia''s racist right, which he delights in murdering ever greater numbers of foreign looking innocents (usually from the Caucasus), is deeply troubling. He suggests it is the one political force which threatens Putin''s mafia state. Harding''s book makes it clear that Russia has sunk once again into a deep political and social malaise that is going to make the immense challenges facing all of us despite the current crisis tougher, not easier."--Misha Glenny, Irish Times " Mafia State deals with many aspects of Russian life, from the Russian-Georgian war to the rise of the far Right, from Putin''s wealth to rural poverty. His reports are clear, precise and up-to-the minute.What is especially striking.is that the Guardian's reporter gets treatment usually reserved for those whom the FSB considers enemies of the state."--Masha Karp, The Spectator "Every diplomat, business person and journalist who works or wishes to work in Russia should read this book.
