Revue de presse

"For anyone wishing to understand Russia's evolution ... the book you hold in your hand is an essential guide ... [T]he country's most recent history is a reflection of the influence of one man, Vladimir Putin. By skillfully dissecting his various 'identities,' showing how these have been reflected in Russian policies and how they may be inadequate to emerging challenges, Hill and Gaddy illuminate not only the recent past but offer a tantalizing glimpse of what the future may hold." --John McLaughlin, former Deputy Director of U.S. Central Intelligence.
"A meticulous psychological portrait of Vladimir Putin and of the highly personalized state he has molded. How Vladimir Putin sees himself is key to how his system works, but, after twelve years of Putin Power, the nation and the people he leads have changed while Putin himself has not. Can Putin reinvent himself? Hill and Gaddy say Russia's new urban middle class wants more than a 'political performance artist."--Jill Dougherty, former Moscow Bureau Chief, CNN
"In this well-written and genuinely entertaining volume, Hill and Gaddy take us behind the theatrics and the rumors to give us a clear and intriguing view of the man himself. They have looked into Putin's eyes and seen . . . a multiplicity of identities, all of which made him what he is today, and all of which tell us something about the Russia he continues to rule. This book is mandatory reading for the president and his advisers."--Robert Kagan, author of The World America Made
"Since Vladimir Putin's return to the Kremlin, Russia-watchers have revisited the perennial puzzle of 'Who is Mr. Putin?'. Fiona Hill and Clifford Gaddy, scholars at the Brookings Institution, have produced the most illuminating study so far, situating the Russian leader within the dual contexts of Russian history and his own KGB past."--Angela Stent, Georgetown University, in Survival
"With so many one-dimensional portraits of the Russian leader, the new offering by Fiona Hill and Clifford Gaddy is a refreshing change of pace. Mr. Putin: Operative in the Kremlin seeks to move beyond the prevailing stereotypes to provide interested readers with "a portrait of Mr. Putin's mental outlook, his worldview, and the individual aspects or identities that comprise this worldview." -- Nikolas Gvosdev, Naval War College, in The National Interest.
"Brookings Institution senior fellows and veteran Russia watchers Hill and Gaddy ( The Siberian Curse) bring high-level expertise to bear on the enigma of Vladimir Putin in this illuminating study. The authors divide Putin's political identity into six basic personas, including the Statist, the History Man, the Survivalist, the Outsider, the Free Marketer and, perhaps most crucially, the Case Officer. Their analysis of each combines enough historical background and contemporary analysis for a graduate-level seminar along with an accessible writing style that won't deter more casual readers. The History Man, for example, is shown as habitually invoking Russia's hallowed past to justify his obsession with an ever-looming threat of disorder, while the Case Officer uses persuasive, focused techniques of gaining a target's confidence, first learned in the KGB, to "enlist every Russian in the service of the state." Though Hill and Gaddy's prose often bears a think tank report's heavy imprint, the authors' final verdict on the Putin era is astute, warning that unless Putin can adapt and perhaps loosen his grip, this seemingly indispensable man will get the blame when his personalized governance apparatus no longer functions well enough to support his nation's needs." --Publishers Weekly

Présentation de l'éditeur

Who is Vladimir Putin? Observers have described him as a "man from nowhere"—someone without a face, substance, or soul. Russia experts Fiona Hill and Clifford Gaddy argue that Putin is in fact a man of many and complex identities. Drawing on a range of sources, including their own personal encounters, they describe six that are most essential: the Statist, the History Man, the Survivalist, the Outsider, the Free Marketeer, and the Case Officer. Understanding Putin's multiple dimensions is crucial for policymakers trying to decide how best to deal with Russia.

Hill and Gaddy trace the identities back to formative experiences in Putin's past,
including his early life in Soviet Leningrad, his KGB training and responsibilities, his years
as deputy mayor in the crime and corruptionridden city of St. Petersburg, his first role in
Moscow as the "operative" brought in from the outside by liberal reformers in the Kremlin
to help control Russia's oligarchs, and his time at the helm of a resurgent Russian state.
The authors then examine the nature of the political system Putin has built, explaining it
as a logical result of these six identities.

Vladimir Putin has his own idealized view of himself as CEO of "Russia, Inc." But rather
than leading a transparent public corporation, he runs a closed boardroom, not
answerable to its stakeholders. Now that his corporation seems to be in crisis, with
political protests marking Mr. Putin's return to the presidency in 2012, will the CEO be held accountable for its failings?

"For more than a dozen years—the equivalent of three American presidential terms—
Vladimir Putin has presided over the largest nation on the planet, the second most
powerful nuclear arsenal, and massive natural resources. Yet there is still debate
about who he really is. Fiona Hill and Clifford Gaddy have gone a long way in
answering that question, starting with the title, which makes a crucial point: even
though 'Mr. Putin' was, in his upbringing and early career, a prototype of the Soviet man,
he's no longer 'Comrade Putin.' His aim is not the restoration of communism. He has
made a deal with the capitalists who have thrived in Russia over the past two decades:
they support him in the exercise of his political power, and he supports them in
amassing their fortunes."—from the foreword by Strobe Talbott

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great for people interested in modern Russia 16 mars 2013
Par LEO - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
As someone who has spent a lot of time thinking about Russia, I thought this book was an excellent guide to understanding Putin's style of government. He came out of nowhere to become the president of a country on the verge of collapse and is now extremely well-known throughout the world, but no one has any idea where he came from. This book clearly explained the logic behind his policies, and even made him sympathetic, in spite of the familiar gangster image that Americans are most familiar with. This was well-written and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 An innovative approach to understanding how Russia is ruled 29 juin 2013
Par Daniel Goldberg - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
A highly readable work and a very useful addition to the literature on Putin and Putinism. The multiple identities approach was a brilliant innovation, for Putin is a complex character who cannot be examined using a single lens. That said, one could no doubt comb even what little we have in the way of facts about earlier periods of his life to find additional identities - The Loyalist, for example. Of special note is the discussion of Putin having been Absent at the Revolution - having missed out on the events and atmospherics of Perestroyka, and how that made him different from other Russian politicians.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 "Time Machine" Book: To Regress or Progress? 3 septembre 2013
Par Dmitry Ivanov - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
This is a book one can enjoy reading several times. As a person who eye-witnessed political and economic changes of the 1990s and 2000s, I found the book more about the recent history of the Russian political system than the celebrity president. No doubt, the authors' retrospective analysis helps understand Mr. Putin's views, values, and vision for Russia. And these are not unique to the Russian president alone. Operative in the Kremlin is a "time-machine" book. It is both serious and fun to read. I would recommend the book to Russian students who study history, political science, international affairs, or economics.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent read 5 mai 2013
Par mckftw - Publié sur Amazon.com
The book paints a compelling portrait of Vladimir Putin's ever-changing and multi-faceted character that has allowed him to remain at the helm of the Russian ship of state for more than a dozen years.

The book explores several distinct identities used by Putin. As the History Man, Putin attempts to use the sweep of Russian history to construct a mostly artificial cultural and nationalist identity for modern Russians. He has borrowed extensively from both Soviet and Tsarist Russia to concoct this image of Russia today. The Survivalist in Putin, originating in the hardships of WWII (although before his birth, Putin lost a brother in the siege of Leningrad), has led him to build up the world's most extensive strategic reserves to tide Russia over in a crisis. Finally, Putin's personal governing strategy reflects his career as a KGB Case Officer. Putin prefers to work behind the scenes, utilizing personal connections to apply pressure to advance his agenda, rather than pursuing his policies in the public forum.

Putin's combined identities have led him to construct a highly unique system, in which the government is a ladder, with him at the top. Oligarchs are free to amass personal wealth as long as they provide some necessary service to the Russian state. The government (Putin) maintains control through a system of quasi-blackmail and personal interaction. The Russian people, by and large, are not consulted.

Putin's political system, as portrayed in Mr. Putin: Operative in the Kremlin, will almost certainly not survive Putin himself. The big question is what happens next.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The New Old Kremlin 27 février 2014
Par Dr Y - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Yes the Cold War is over. Yes the Soviet Union is gone, and so are its Communist icons. Or are they? This is about as close a look as you can get into the New Old Kremlin - - - particularly of Putin himself. In historical hindsight, Putin may be viewed as the last of a generation of former Soviets to rule in a non-Soviet Russia. This story still reeks of Party politics, insider cliques, with a pervading presence of Russian history from Nevskii to Stolypin and more. To get that deep, almost personal look at Mr. Putin and the world he reigns over, this book is the best out there.
