Beginning with the fall of the Soviet Union, Russian dissident and chess champion Garry Kasparov traces the circumstances that allowed Putin to flourish, including Russia's aborted attempt at democracy under Boris Yeltsin and the Chechen Wars. Despite Putin's constant and ruthless assaults on civil liberties and international diplomacy--including his botched hostage negotiations in Beslan, corruption and voter fraud, the imprisonment and murders of protesters and opposition figures, and the annexation of the Crimea region in Ukraine--the West and the UN continue to acquiesce to his demands, making him stronger. Learn why Garry Kasparov likens Putin to Adolf Hitler of the 1930s and why he believes that if no one steps in to stop him, the consequences could be disastrous. The summary and analysis in this ebook are intended to complement your reading experience and bring you closer to a great work of nonfiction.
