Summary
Russia under Vladimir Putin has proved a prickly partner for the West, a far cry from the democratic ally many hoped for when the Soviet Union collapsed. Abroad, Putin has used Russia's energy strength as a foreign policy weapon, while at home he has cracked down on opponents, adamant that only he has the right vision for his country's future
Summary
Draws on firsthand accounts in a portrait of Russia under the leadership of Vladimir Putin, offering insight into Putin's political history, his brutal suppression of dissenters, and his aspirations for a post-Communist Russia
