This is a compelling and authoritative book on Vladimir Putin by Fiona Hill and Clifford G Gaddy from the US Brookings Institute.
BOOK REVIEW: “Mr Putin: Operative in the Kremlin” – an updated version | Johnson's Russia List
I have a hard back copy and a Kindle version of the original edition of the book. Surely, I'm entitled to receive the updated version for free!?
It's well worth a read as its cuts through all the crap spouted by Western Media, amateur psychologists, would-be Putinologists.
