The Last Man in Russia PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The Last Man in Russia free pdf Russia is dying from the inside out. Faced with a staggering population decline--and looming economic collapse--driven in large part by toxic levels of alcohol abuse, the country is on a path to ruin. In "The Last Man in Russia," award-winning journalist Oliver Bullough explains that Russia's self-destruction is a representation of a deeper sickness: a spiritual one, born out of the country's long communist experiment. Leading readers on a journey across Russia, from a churchyard in Moscow to the mass graves in a former gulag and the headquarters of a burgeoning white supremacist group, Bullough reveals the extent and nature of the malaise--and the tragic tale of the one man who might have prevented it.
"The Last Man in Russia" cuts to the heart of the Russian experience, forming a narrative that is at once a travelogue, a sociological study, a biography, and a cri de coeur for a dying nation.
