Gerald R Skinner, who observed the August 1991 coup attempt in Moscow from his post in the Canadian Embassy, tells the story of the city's survival in the face of invasion and war, pestilence and fire. His 'portrait of the city over time' discusses Moscow's origins, its self-perception and the influences upon its development and character, from medieval citadel to the post-Soviet Union era and a 'New Moscow' still 'profoundly affected by its past'.
