This book discusses the interview project undertaken with key participants in Russia's reforms from 1999 to early 2005: Yegor Gaidar, was acting prime minister for a year, until his resignation in January 1993; Anatoly Chubais, was the architect of Russian privatization; Boris Nemtsov, was a liberal, pro-market politician who had served a variety of roles since 1992. Also interviewed were US policy formulators and analysts from the Reagan and Clinton administrations with a view to eliciting their judgments on Russia's political and economic issues: Strobe Talbott, deputy secretary of state from 1994–2001 in the Clinton administration; Jack Matlock Jr., US ambassador to the Soviet Union from 1987–1991; Richard Pipes, professor emeritus of history at Harvard University; the late Martin Malia, professor emeritus of history at the University of California–Berkeley; George Soros, financier and philanthropist. The interviews went beyond economic issues and political changes to discuss Russian foreign policy, history, society, and demography.
