The "Novaya Gazeta" publishing house released a new book by Mikhail Kasyanov and Yevgeny Kiselyov, written in the form of dialogue. The title of the book is "Beyond Putin". Kasyanov and Kiselev recall the Soviet years of their life, reflect on the latest developments in Russia - the presidential elections of 1996-2008, default in August 1998, the fate of independent television, the Yukos case. They are trying to find the answer to the eternal question: Could events in the country develop according to alternative scenarios?
This book - a conversation between two active participants of political life of the last decade - is one of the first endeavors to explain and understand the changes that have taken place recently. But this book is not only about the past, but also about the present day of Russia and its future.
