Empire of Corruption is Vladimir Soloviev’s attempt to share his opinions on Russia’s ways of dealing with corruption. With a certain irony, Soloviev calls the issue ‘the Russian national pastime’, explaining why in the country where everyone is supposedly fighting corruption, corruption still rules.

The author’s detailed research into the corruption structure in Russia, with concrete examples and historical references, is now available to the reader in the English language. Soloviev goes further than just talking about the basics of this evil phenomenon; the author suggests a method, a personal path each citizen of Russia may follow to avert corruption in their country.

"Looking past the weighty subject, Empire was a fun, accessible read. If it’s true that Soloviev is a “professional troll”, then I can see how he earned the title: a surprising amount of wit, sarcasm, and snark graces these pages. Soloviev leaves no official unscathed…" J.T., Russia Reviewed

"The author does not exaggerate or apply labels but takes the position of a wise observer, thus helping the readers to form their own point of view on the issue. The most distinctive features of the book are its depth of analysis and its fascinating narration." ROSPIL INFO
