Freeland on Russia

I started to read Sale of the century by C Freeland. It describes the capitalist revolution in Russia. It is a very good read, which I much prefer to Politkovskaya's Putin's Russia. That's probably because Freeland offers much more background on economics and economic reform.

Although it seems to have been published first in 2000, it still is a good account of economic development in Russia, because it clearly explains the shrewd situation Russia finds itself in today.
