Editorial Reviews

Review

"[Andrei Soldatov is] the single most prominent critic of Russia's surveillance apparatus." --Edward Snowden

"If you want to know the history of Russian intelligence, look no further. Revealing, new, and rich in detail. From simple surveillance to electronic snooping Russian-style, a gripping and important study. This is a book you hope Russian officials don't find in your luggage." --Richard Engel, chief foreign correspondent, NBC News

"Russia hands and Net neutrality advocates alike will find plenty to intrigue in this report from the front lines." --Kirkus Reviews

"A masterful study of the struggle between the Kremlin's desire to control information and the unruly world of ordinary digital citizen." - The Guardian

"[Soldatov and Borogan] pull at the roots of the surveillance system in Russia today, and their research leads them quickly to the paranoid society of the Soviet Union.." - The Wall Street Journal

"The excellent, highly readable tale of the ongoing struggle to control digital life in Russia." - The Los Angeles Review of Books
