The following is the introduction to the ebook Russia: The New Age. The book is a collection of articles and observations based on more than six months spent in Russia. It is not intended to be the definitive work on Russian history. Rather, it is intended as a glimpse into the lives and thoughts of Russians as they lived through one of the most turbulent periods in their history—from 1993 to present.

“Before 1993 I could predict the future, not now. We live all the time like we are on the top of the volcano.” Nikolay, 2008.
