Description - Putin by Richard Sakwa

The new edition of this extremely well-received political biography of Vladimir Putin builds on the strengths of the first edition to provide the most detailed and nuanced account of the man, his politics and his profound influence on Russian politics, foreign policy and society. New to this edition: * analysis of Putin's second term as President * more biographical information in the light of recent research * detailed discussion of changes to the policy process and the elites around Putin * developments in state-society relations including the conflicts with oligarchs such as Khodorkovsky * review of changes affecting the party system and electoral legislation, including the development of federalism in Russia * details on economic performance under Putin, including more discussion of the energy sector and pipeline politics * Russia's relationship with NATO after the 'big bang' enlargement, EU-Russian relations after enlargement, and Russia's relations with other post-Soviet states * the conclusion brings us up-to-date with debates over the question of democracy in Russia today and the nature of Putin's leadership and his place in the world. Putin is essential reading for all scholars and students of Russian politics.
