This book should jolt both American and Russian policy makers, for neither is aware of the features of the future Russian leadership of the country. The research represented here is unique: detailed focus groups in all three of the select Moscow universities from which leaders come, with confidentiality assured, analyze international issues; determinants of trust (interpersonal and on the internet), and demonstrations. Fluent in several languages; well-traveled; this is the future and the leaders to come: “living” in that internet world sets them apart, as does their selection to receive the best education in the country. The book discovers as well that for them “status” has little meaning: a leveling has taken place, and content is the key on the internet. Platitudes and attempts at persuasion are instantly identified and the sites rejected.
