I do like a bibliography, and Mark Schauss’ Russian Rulers podcast has one on its website. So I thought I’d copy it over. It’s maybe not a complete bibliography, more of a suggested started point for someone inspired by the show to read more.
I have none of these books, although I am aware of a few of the authors. Orlando Figes was always on my wishlist, but I’ve heard a few strange things about him – secret amazon review accounts and libel cases – ah well, I’m sure his books still stand up.
