This book explores the delusional imaginings of Russia's pseudo-scientific alternative history movement, which diligently rewrites Russia's past and rediscovers its hidden greatness. Alternative history has become a popular therapy for Russians still coming to terms with the reality of post-Soviet life. It is one of the forces shaping a new Russian nationalism and an important factor in the geopolitics of the twenty-first century.
