Hailed for her “fearless indictment of the most powerful man in Russia” (*The* Wall Street Journal), award-winning journalist Masha Gessen is unparalleled in her understanding of the events and forces that have wracked her native country in recent times. In The Future Is History, she follows the lives of four people born at what promised to be the dawn of democracy.

Powerful and urgent, The Future Is Historyis a cautionary tale for our time and for all time.
