    Since the fall of communism, Russia has witnessed a dramatic struggle between old and new, continuity and change. Corruption and violence have plagued society. Most people have benefited little from the new capitalist order. But positive changes are evident. Russians can speak and act more freely in a state that no longer intrudes on their privacy. They are able to travel abroad, enjoy unprecedented access to information from around the world, and organize and campaign for improvement in their living conditions.In this engrossing account Robert Service traces the formation of the new Russia from the end of the Soviet Union in 1991 to the present. He paints a fascinating picture of a people in metamorphosis. In wide-ranging discussions on topics from Kremlin politics to rock music and macroeconomics to contemporary poetry, Service takes us inside to witness the changes from both the top down and the bottom up. He examines the reforms of the Yeltsin and Putin administrations in the context of the complex communist legacy, deftly interweaving political history, intellectual thought, and popular consciousness to illuminate the real difficulties Russia has faced on its rocky path to reform. For the second time in less than a century, the Russians have been engaged in a fundamental reshaping of their society, and the results will prove of vital importance to the global community. Robert Service has provided a valuable and engaging guide to their recent remarkable journey.

    Leon Trotsky fue un personaje contradictorio: revolucionario, teorico, escritor de gran calado, mujeriego (llego a tener un lio con Frida Kahlo), icono de la Revolucion Rusa, judio antisemita, filosofo de la vida cotidiana. Vivio una vida extraordinaria en unos tiempos extraordinarios. Robert Service ha investigado en los archivos para brindarnos una version novedosa de su vida que aclara mucha luz sobre el personaje. Leon Trotsky nacio en Yanovka, Ucrania el 7 de noviembre de 1879 (26 de octubre segun el calendario juliano prerrevolucionario) y murio asesinado en Coyoacan, Ciudad de Mexico, el 21 de agosto de 1940. Politico y teorico revolucionario sovietico de origen judio, protagonista de la revolucion bolchevique en Rusia en 1917, que dio origen al primer Estado obrero del mundo. Negocio la retirada de Rusia de la Primera Guerra Mundial mediante la Paz de Brest-Litovsk. Tuvo a su cargo la creacion del Ejercito Rojo que consolidaria definitivamente los logros revolucionarios venciendo a catorce ejercitos extranjeros y a los Ejercitos Blancos contrarrevolucionarios durante la Guerra civil rusa; fue condecorado con la Orden de la Bandera Roja. Posteriormente, se enfrento politica e ideologicamente a Jose Stalin, liderando la Oposicion de Izquierda, lo que le causo el exilio y posterior asesinato a manos de la GPU.
