This is a truly gorgeous book on Russian history from 1995 till 2015 which traces the transformations of Putin and his inner circle during these years. It documents Vladimir Putin’s ascent to become the most powerful Russian president in decades. It took the author seven years to collect the documents, interview current and former members of Moscow’s power elite and compile it into the book.
The Guardian called the book “one of the most compelling” reads written about Vladimir Putin.
It even mentions that Russia had some plans for annexation of Crimea back in 2013!
