Between Two Fires: Truth, Ambition, and Compromise in Putin’s Russia

In Between Two Fires: Truth, Ambition, and Compromise in Putin’s Russia (Tim Duggan Books; January 14, 2020), Yaffa paints intimate and complex portraits of some of the country’s most remarkable figures who have built their lives and careers around navigating the omnipresent demands of the state.
