Mikhail Khodorkovsky’s latest book, Gardariki: Land of Cities. 10 principles of reform for a post-Putin Russia, offers his take on Russia’s genuine national interests, as opposed to those espoused by the Kremlin.

The work outlines the benefits of a deeper integration into the world economy, as well as a new economic and political Perestroika at home, giving the country a chance to play a worthy role in the global system.
