They say you can't know the players without a program. After the Decembrist Revolt of 1825, it has been written that Czar Nicholas raised the secret police to force larger than the standing army. This is the environment and legacy that the Sovits inherited. Of course ther is no mention of Putin in this work... Putin studied law at the Saint Petersburg State University in 1970, didn't join the KGB until after he graduated in 1975. Putin is straight out of Spy vs. Spy. "Putin trained at the 401st KGB school in Okhta, Saint Petersburg. After training, he worked in the Second Chief Directorate (counter-intelligence), before he was transferred to the First Chief Directorate, where he monitored foreigners and consular officials in Saint Petersburg."

Please revue the pictures as they are part of my description. Every effort is made to give a full and accurate picture of the condition of each book. There is an overall assessment of condition ("Like New", "Very Good", "Good+", "Good"", etc.), followed by a description of the dust jacket, where one is present, then all blemishes are recorded. The grade of condition accorded to any book is, of course, a matter of the appraiser's opinion, but "Like New", for instance, can be taken to mean that the book looks virtually as it did when first published. "Very Good" is a notch down from "Like New" and usually denotes that the book has been read by one careful owner over the age of fifty-five. "Good+" denotes that the book has been read by several careful persons of similar maturity. "Good" means what it says, volume is evenly worn and in tact. "FAIR" means not very good, "Poor" means that, except for antiquity and/or subject matter, the volume is suitable for a fireplace. Though every effort is made to give a full and accurate picture of the condition of each item, the grade of condition accorded to an item is, of course, a matter of the appraiser's opinion, but satisfaction is guaranteed and full refunds will be given upon the safe return of item(s) wherever the condition has been grossly misrepresented.
