    Ian Frazier trains his perceptive, generous eye on Siberia, the storied expanse of Asiatic Russia whose grim renown is but one explanation among hundreds for the region’s enduring appeal. In TRAVELS IN SIBERIA, Frazier reveals Siberia’s role in history – its science, economics, and politics – with great passion and enthusiasm, ensuring that we’ll never think about it in the same way again. Frazier tells the stories of Siberia’s most famous exiles, from the well-known – Dostoyevsky, Lenin (twice), Stalin (numerous times) – to the lesser known (like Natalie Lopukhin, banished by the empress for copying her dresses) to those who experienced unimaginable suffering in Siberian camps under the Soviet regime. A New York Times Book Review Notable Book of the Year. B&W illus.; 1 map. 560p.
