"Moscow-based journalists Andrei Soldatov and Irina Borogan look at the complex, ever-shifting role of Russian emigrés since the 1917 October Revolution to the present day. From secret agents to doomed dissidents, the story of Russian emigrés is an invaluable angle through which to understand Russia in the modern world."-- Provided by publisher.
