As Amy Knight shows, the KGB was renamed and reorganized several times after it was officially disbanded in December 1991, but it was not reformed. Knight's rich and lively narrative begins with the aborted August 1991 coup, led by KGB hard-liners, and takes us up through the summer of 1995, when the Russian parliamentary elections were looming on the horizon. This story, told by one of the foremost experts on the Soviet/Russian security services and enriched by face-to-face interviews with security professionals in Moscow, is crucial to understanding Russian politics in transition."--Provided by publisher."@en ;
