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.

"The authors have an unusually acute understanding of Russia society, politics, and economics, and of how Russia and the outside world have related to each other historically. Each of their scenarios achieves verisimilitude from a mass of vivid and convincing detail."--Washington Post Book World
"Stimulating, original, provocative, and persuasive [and] immensely useful in helping us think through the world after communism and the character of the 21st century."--Robert Strauss
Excellent...The breadth of ground the book covers in so few pages is remarkable. Yergin and Gustafson see the nuances. They catch [Russia's] chaotic dynamism, its historical confusion, its potential either to emerge explosively as one of the economic giants of the next century or to flounder into resentful suspicion of the outside world."--The Boston Globe
"Important... an intelligent and essential guide .... Whatever the West does should be done on the basis of clear-eyed knowledge of what Russia really is like. Reading this book would be a good place to start." -- Chicago Tribune
"Original .... A text which will be of enormous help for all who wish to think open-mindedly about Russia's inscrutable future."
