What is it with the Russians? They seem powerless to resist the grip of a strongman, while at the same time they are masters of subterfuge, corruption, and espionage. And then there is the "Russian soul," the deep thread of humanity running through their society, which has produced some of the world's most beautiful and poignant literature, music, and art.

To better know and understand the forces that have put the world's largest country in the headlines again, we offer books ranging from the stories of Mikhail Bulgakov and Nikolai Leskov to histories of the czars or the Siege of Leningrad; from cold war thrillers with Stalin's KGB to the inside story of Edward Snowden's defection to Russia. Here too you can find the music of Mussorgsky and the documentary exploits of the Russian-American band Bering Strait.
