By looking at the top 0.1 percent of Russian society, this book captures the stories of multimillionaires and billionaires, their spouses, and their children. It traces how rich Russians moved from conspicuously spending cash into a conscious social class, legitimizing their wealth through philanthropy and more bourgeois manners. As the first book to examine the transformation of Russia's former robber barons into a new social class, Rich Russians provides insight into how the Russian's status-quo and post-Putin world will develop.
