Reviewed by one person
This book is easy to read and accessible. It is a bit dated now since it only gets a year or two into Putin's second term. many of the author's conclusions have proven to come true, though maybe not in the way she envisioned them. I would choose to read further installments on this topic if she were top write them. (she may already have written more on this. I haven't searched yet.)
