Inside Putin's Russia

Can There Be Reform without Democracy?

Andrew Jack

Drawing on interviews with Putin, other leading figures, and ordinary Russians, Andrew Jack, former Moscow Bureau Chief of the Financial Times, describes how the former KGB official emerged from the shadows of the Soviet secret police and lowly government jobs to become the most powerful man in Russia. Jack shows how Putin has defied domestic and foreign expectations, presiding over a period of strong economic growth, significant restructuring, and rising international prestige.
