Synopsis: 2010: Russia disintegrates as its frontier regions rebel or drift into the orbit of neighboring countries. 2010: Russia is invigorated by an economic chudo -- "miracle" -- that turns it into a thriving exemplar of the free market. 2010: Russia becomes a grim military dictatorship, bent on expansion.
This brilliant and visionary book, which is based on a confidential report by the international consulting firm CERA, offers several persuasively detailed scenarios of Russia's future. Using the management technique of "scenario planning" and drawing on an extensive knowledge of Russia's political and economic history, Daniel Yergin and Thane Gustafson have produced a study that is already shaping the investment strategies of major corporations and that will become an essential text in the policy debates about the next century. Russia 2010 captures in a timely way the changes shaking Russia and the former Soviet Union after Communism. The result is one of those rare books that not only predict the future but have the power to change it.

Product Description: Fine cloth copy in an equally fine dw. Particularly and surprisingly well-preserved; tight, bright, clean and especially sharp-cornered. ; 300 pages; Summary: From the author of the Pulitzer and Eccles Prize-winning, "The Prize", this book analyzes one of the most important events of the 20th and 21st centuries - what comes next after the collapse of the Soviet Union. It uses the management technique of scenario planning to build four plausible stories of the future already evidenced by events occuring in Russia today - not least the recent success in the elections of the ultra-nationalists. Yergin and Gustafson provide essential insight into emerging power relationships, local ethnic wars that could turn into wider conflicts, and they also study the opportunities and pitfalls facing the new Russia.
