WINNER OF THE ORWELL PRIZEWINNER OF THE CORNELIUS RYAN AWARD FINALIST FOR THE LIONEL GELBER PRIZE FINANCIAL TIMES BOOK OF THE YEAR “Fast-paced and excellently written." —New York Times “Filled with sparkling prose and deep analysis.” –The Wall Street JournalAn essential analysis to understanding Putin's playbook and understanding the real Russian threat to World order and peaceHow did a country that embraced freedom over twenty-five years ago end up as an autocratic police state bent once again on confrontation with the West?
