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

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
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
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.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Very informative and thought provoking, but sometimes confusing 5 avril 2014

I've learned a lot about Mr Putin's personaliity and can better understand his public career and political choices. The core argument about Mr. Putin's kaleidoscopic personality is provocative but not always precise. His different identities overlap each other and every single dimension of his experience could explain every episode of Putin's rise to the Kremlin as singled out by the authors. Not perfect, but I would read it again.

A worthwhile speculation on Putin's psychological makeup. Though the categories the writers have settled on are not very convincing, the incidents they describe are interesting in themselves. Some of the best however are in the appendix on chapter notes and would have been better in the body of the text.
