Barbara Haas’s nonfiction interrogates Russia, the actual Place, a real and tangible country which occupies physical coordinates on the map—and also examines Russia, the archetypal Threat, as conceived by us in the West and nurtured in our fears. She synthesizes history, culture, data, politics and propaganda into high-impact micro-sagas whose goal is to shed light on crucial truths about our Cold War-era frenemy as well as about ourselves—what we prize, what we scorn, what we dream about, what we fear.
