9780852652497: Mafia State: Spies, Surveillance and Russia's Secret Wars

In 2007 Luke Harding arrived in Moscow to take up a new job as a correspondent for the British newspaper the "Guardian". Within months, mysterious agents from Russia's Federal Security Service - the successor to the KGB - had broken into his flat. He found himself tailed by men in cheap leather jackets, bugged, and even summoned to Lefortovo, the KGB's notorious prison. The break-in was the beginning of an extraordinary psychological war against the journalist and his family. Vladimir Putin's spies used tactics developed by the KGB and perfected in the 1970s by the Stasi, East Germany's sinister secret police. This clandestine campaign burst into the open in 2011 when the Kremlin expelled Harding from Moscow - the first western reporter to be deported from Russia since the days of the Cold War. "Mafia State: How One Reporter Became an Enemy of the Brutal New Russia" is a brilliant and haunting account of the insidious methods used by a resurgent Kremlin against its so-called "enemies" - human rights workers, western diplomats, journalists and opposition activists. It includes unpublished material from confidential US diplomatic cables, released last year by WikiLeaks, which describe Russia as a "virtual mafia state". Harding gives a unique, personal and compelling portrait of today's Russia, two decades after the end of communism, that reads like a spy thriller.

About the Author:

Luke Harding is an award-winning foreign correspondent with the Guardian. He has reported from Delhi, Berlin and Moscow and has also covered wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. He is the co-author of two previous books, written with David Leigh, WikiLeaks: Inside Julian Assange's War on Secrecy (2011) and The Liar: The Fall of Jonathan Aitken (1997), nominated for the Orwell Prize. The Hollywood studio DreamWorks has bought film rights to WikiLeaks. He has also written for the magazine Granta. He lives in Hertfordshire with his wife, the freelance journalist Phoebe Taplin, and their two children.

Review:

"A courageous and explosive expose" -- Orlando Figes "An entertaining and alarming account of Vladimir Putin's police state" Observer "Russia laid bare in an absorbing account of four years spent as head of the Guardian's Moscow bureau ... an essential read" -- David Clark New Statesman "Uncertainty, fear and understandable paranoia permeate this book. But this does not cloud the analysis. Harding's description of the rise of Russia's racist right . is deeply troubling" -- Misha Glenny Irish Times "Clear, precise and up-to-the minute" Spectator
