Plutocrats: The Rise of the New Global Super-Rich and the Fall of Everyone Else. Freeland has the knowledge but she presents it in a manner that jumps from one type of evidence to another. I wish I had read her later book before reading this one. As it is, I am just jumping around in the text with my interests. I doubt that I would have read much of it if I didn't already have a good deal of knowledge of this period of Russian history and economics.

The organization of the text could have been improved with good editing. Freeland has the knowledge but she presents it in a manner that jumps from one type of evidence to another. I wish I had read her later book before reading this one. As it is, I am just jumping around in the text with my interests. I doubt that I would have read much of it if I didn't already have a good deal of knowledge of this period of Russian history and economics.
