Why did Russia fail so miserably on the road to becoming a member of the law-abiding-democratically-governed-nations club? Why did Russia, 28 years after the “Red Sunset,” become an adversary of the West? How did the graduates of the USSR’s most powerful and most repressive institution, its political police, the KGB, manage to take control of the nation’s governmental and economic realms? These are the questions this course is going to explore and try to answer.
