Darkness at Dawn: The Rise of the Russian Criminal State

Special!
   
David Satter

A volume of Age of Delirium / Darkness at Dawn / It Was a Long Time Ago, and It Never Happened Anyway

“In Darkness at Dawn, I have tried to describe the rise of a business criminal elite and its takeover of the machinery of the Russian state, leading to the impoverishment and demoralization of the great majority of the population. The book consists of narrative histories and personal stories. The histories show how criminal oligarchic power achieved its present dominance in Russia, while the stories of ordinary Russians provide a social context for the activities of this ‘elite.’ I have chosen to describe Russia with the help of the stories because Russians experienced a spiritual crisis in the reform period as a result of being confronted with a new way of life for which their previous experience had not prepared them. To understand this spiritual crisis, facts alone are not sufficient. It is necessary to grasp the psychology of Russia, and this can be conveyed only through the stories of individual lives. It is also not irrelevant that telling stories of ordinary Russians is a way to help them. As the Danish novelist Isak Dinesen put it, ‘All sorrows can be borne if you put them into a story or tell a story about them.’”
