Samuel Rachlin's I, Putin
We are thrilled to welcome journalist Samuel Rachlin and his latest best selling  book  I, Putin . The book lays out both the current political and economic conditions at play in today's Russia and the historical and philosophical foundations that Putin has revived in his attempt to build Russia's new identity and national purpose. It has been published in Denmark and has gone into four printings, with 10,000 copies circulating. 
Born in Siberia by a Danish mother and a Lithuanian father, Samuel draws on his many years of hands-on experience as a correspondent in Russia, where he covered for radio, TV, and print media.
Rachlin has published a collection of essays, "Me and Stalin" (People's Press 2011), "A Life Well Crafted" (Gyldendal 2014), and many other books over the years.
