The Roots of the Ukraine Crisis

The war in Ukraine can be traced back to the failure of democracy to take hold in Russia in the early 1990s. Blame is shared on both sides, and a revisit of this period is useful for understanding how we got to the present situation.

I wrote this account of my adventures as a young, impressionable man who embarked on a journey of a lifetime to a country emerging from decades of darkness. The book is written as a collection of personal anecdotes that provide insight, often comical, into the culture clash between East and West that has yet to be resolved.

"...A remarkable, adventure-packed odyssey in Russia.... It will challenge readers to think more critically about international relations and world governments." San Francisco Book Review

Available on Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
