Putin has his own approach for dealing with the myriad problems facing Russia, emphasizing recentralization of power and a strong state. He has returned to power amid unresolved policy issues both domestically and from the international community. Only by understanding these concerns—and previous efforts to deal with them—will it be possible to understand the country's trajectory. Well written and clearly organized, this text is an indispensable guide for anyone wanting to understand contemporary Russia.
