Description of this Book

From the ruins of Kiev to the Bond-villain lairs of Knightsbridge and Central Park, something has gone wrong with the system of the world. Join the investigative journalist Oliver Bullough on a journey into the universe of the lawless, stateless superrich, where third-world kleptocrats rub shoulders with terror financiers, captains of industry and western heads of state. Learn how the institutions of the United States and Europe have become money-laundering operations, climbing over one another in a scramble to sell off the foundations of their own stability. Discover the true cost of being open for business, no matter the customer. Meet the dictators. Meet their awful children. And find out how activists around the world are fighting to put the genie of unlimited power plus zero responsibility back in its bottle.

Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review Praise for Let Our Fame Be Great: With this impassioned volume [Bullough] has struck a blow for the glory of the Caucasus and helped to give a voice to the voiceless. -- Justin Marozzi * The Financial Times * Praise for The Last Man in Russia: The Last Man in Russia might be compared to Colin Thubron's Among the Russians - perhaps the last book in English to come so close to pinning down the Russianness of Russia. -- Mary Dejevsky * The Independent * The Last Man in Russia is distinguished by the excellence of its writing and its lucid, unsparing gaze. * The Daily Telegraph *
UK Review Bertrams Star Rating: 3 stars (out of 5)
