Summary
  • "For reasons that are made clear in this book, Putin's Russia will collapse just as Imperial Russia did in 1917 and as Soviet Russia did in 1991. The only questions are when, how violently, and with how much peril for the world. The U.S. election complicates everything, including: Putin's next land grab; Exploitations of the Arctic; Cyber-espionage; Putin and China... and many more crucial topics. An essential read for everybody bewildered and dismayed by the new world order"--Provided by publisher
  • "This electrifying and supremely timely book by leading Russian expert Richard Lourie explores Putin's failures, missed opportunities, and probable future moves. Readers discover, for example, where Putin's next land grab is likely to be. Questions are asked and answered about Putin's nefarious plans for the Arctic, as well as along the border with China, which presents other intriguing dilemmas for the man from the KGB. Donald Trump's unexpected and bizarre election win gives Putin extraordinarily dangerous options. Putin: His Downfall and Russia's Coming Crash is an essential read for anyone bewildered and dismayed by current events."--Jacket
