Excerpt

My deepest gratitude to Susan Waldman, my dearest friend, who believed in this project before I did. You saw the ideas in this book germinate slowly over the last ten years. Your undying support was invaluable.

Thanks to Lionel and Louis, my brothers, who constantly reminded me to keep my eyes on the prize and always provided me a loving and relaxing sanctuary in their homes.

Jyl Lynn Felman, a loving friend, has been a constant source of inspiration that there are no limits and that “my voice” on these critical “revolutionary” events in Russia should be heard.

Thanks to Barbara Harris. It has been an education to work with you. You are indeed a wordsmith, and your comments have been critical in the writing of this book.

To Clay Sink and Chai Kim, my colleagues and mentors. Your support in helping me to develop as a scholar and grantwriter provided me the building blocks to pursue and complete this project.

Thanks to Janet Borgerson and Jonathan Schroeder, who were very helpful in pushing me to put pen to paper in the very beginning.

Many thanks also to Lori Coakley and Bill Graves.

I also could not get the work completed without the help of several research assistants; thanks to Peruvemba Jaya, Keyur Shah, and Kei Cheung. I wish all of you the best of luck in your endeavors.
