Kasparov explains Russia

If you are in a real hurry to become an expert on the Russian government, you may prefer the DVD section, where you can find Mr. Puzo’s works on film. “The Godfather” trilogy is a good place to start, but do not leave out “The Last Don,” “Omerta” and “The Sicilian.”

Of all people, I think Kasparov is one of the few the Russian government will not touch. Or, at least, I hope this is true.
