The Future Is History
The Future Is History How Totalitarianism Reclaimed Russia By Gessen, Masha Book - 2017

A fascinating account of both the political and ground-level social changes in Russia over the past 35 years. Russia's story shows why it's so difficult for a totalitarian state to transition to a democracy. Russia didn't make it, and Gessen makes a compelling case that now Russians are stuck with the same old totalitarian thing, albeit with a new ideological twist. Democracy is hard, people.
