Mikhail Gorbachev's attempts to reconfigure the Soviet Union's economic system resulted in rampant inflation, a depressed economy, and eventually an attempted coup d'etat. Craig Copetas, a journalist who lived for three years in Moscow, provides a close-up look at the obstacles to a free market facing Russia's fledgling entrepreneurs-the corruption, under-the-table deals, and capital flight crippling a market where business, politics, and the underworld are indistinguishable. This new edition contains a substantial update, bringing this saga of Russian enterprise into the 21st century.

...the strangest & most disturbing portrait of the Russian people I've ever read. It is fine, hard-ball, pure deadline-style journalism. But it is also a very queer story with savage & unnatural undertones-You might as well call it 'Fear and Loathing in Moscow'... (Hunter S. Thompson)
