Book News Annotation:

Litvinenko was poisoned with a lethal dose of Polonium-210 in London in November 2006. In 1998 he disclosed that as a lieutenant-colonel he had been given unlawful orders, among them one to assassinate Russia's first billionaire. He was arrested and acquitted, charged again, sought political asylum in Britain in 2001, and became a British citizen less than a month before he was killed. He and historian Felshtinsky, who emigrated from Russia to the US in 1978, recount activities of the Russian Security Service during the 1990s. Translated from the Russian by Geoffrey Andrews and Company. Annotation ©2007 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

Blowing Up Russia contains the allegations of ex-spy Alexander Litvinenko against his former spymasters in Moscow which led to his being murdered in London in November 2006. In the book he and historian Yuri Felshtinsky detail how since 1999 the Russian secret service has been hatching a plot to return to the terror that was the hallmark of the KGB. Vividly written and based on Litvinenko's 20 years of insider knowledge of Russian spy campaigns, Blowing Up Russia describes how the successor of the KGB fabricated terrorist attacks and launched a war. Writing about Litvinenko, the surviving co-author recounts how the banning of the book in Russia led to three earlier deaths.
