Harmonies For One

The Strongman: Vladimir Putin and the Struggle for Russia

“A collection of heartfelt, self-penned songs ... an emotive mix that touches on themes of love, heartache and social commentary” - The Sunday Herald

“The considerable value of this book lies in [Roxburgh's] painstaking and empathetic effort to understand how Mr Putin came to power, why many Russians still support him today, and how the West's approach to Russia has helped to shape his rule.” - The Wall Street Journal

“... admirable even-handedness and insight.” - The Independent

In Moscow Calling Roxburgh presents his Russia – not the Russia of news reports, but a quirky, crazy, exasperating, beautiful, tumultuous world that in forty years has changed completely, and yet not at all. From the dark, fearful days of communism and his adventures as a correspondent as the Soviet Union collapsed into chaos, to his frustrating work as a media consultant in Putin’s Kremlin, this is a unique, fascinating and often very funny insight into a country that today, more than ever, is of global political significance.
