This September, Shaun Walker’s TheLong Hangover was chosen as the book of the month, with which we wish to announce and prepare our readers for a new adventure, Erika Fatland’s travelogue Sovietistan. A journey throughto Turkmenistan, Kazakhstan, Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan. Both books explore the historical collapse of the Soviet Union and its consequences that corner of the world and people who live there.
The Long Hangover maps Putin's mission of filling the void left by the downfall in 1991 and the building of a new national consciousness and patriotism in Russia.

The book The Long Hangover throughout September can be purchased with a 20 % discount.
