Why Vladimir Putin and the Enemies of the Free World Must Be Stopped
Vladimir Putin runs Russia as his personal kingdom. Come look inside.
In this passionate critique of Vladimir Putin, Russian exile dissident and chess champion Garry Kasparov contends that Russia’s decline into fascism is nearly complete, and the Western world is still ignoring it. Kasparov offers detailed arguments that Putin rigs elections and plunders assets, and discusses the way he wages war and treats other nations. For all his brainpower, Kasparov sometimes seems naïve when the story gets personal. He’s shocked that Russian cops roughed him up when he bellowed at them during his arrest at an anti-Putin protest. Kasparov makes no claims to objectivity. He opposed Putin while living in Russia and fled the country in fear of his life. His crisply written outcry offers a hard look at the ugly side of Russia under Putin. getAbstract recommends Kasporov’s polemic to investors, policy makers, students, professors, NGO leaders and travelers seeking insight into the workings of Russia today.
