A riveting true story about growing up in a criminal underworld.

By age six Nicolai Lilin had been given his first knife. By age twelve he had been convicted of attempted murder.

Lilin was a member of the Siberian Urkas—a tight-knit fraternity with strict codes of honour. In this community crime was a given; the only question was whether the criminal was honest or dishonest. Transgressions brought severe retribution. Weapons were treated almost as religious icons.

Extreme, sometimes disturbing, Siberian Education is an insider's account of a unique and hidden world.

'Terrifying, fascinating, horrific and violent...an eye-opening and gripping account.' Simon Sebag Montefiore, author of Young Stalin
