    One thought on “Mr. Putin: Operative in the Kremlin”

    1. Description From the KGB to the Kremlin a multidimensional portrait of the man at war with the West Where do Vladimir Putin s ideas come from How does he look at the outside world What does he want, and how far is he willing to go The great lesson of the outbreak of World War I in 1914 was the danger of misreading the statements, actions, and intentions of the adversary Today, Vladimir Putin has become the greatest challenge to European security and the global world order in decades Russia s 8,0 [...]

    2. An absorbing read that seeks to understand Putin despite the dearth of information available out there on him.Newly updated to Nov 2014 Hill and Gaddy have put together a detailed book detailing how Putin s ideology is formed directly from his life experiences Whilst not unusual an interpretation in itself, Putin s life was not a privileged upbringing of the likes of the many of the Western political elite His was from the school of hard knocks on the mean streets of Soviet Leningrad and in Dres [...]

    3. Hill and Gaddy provide a unique analysis of Vladimir Putin through his six major identities Overall it is a fair book, not the usual Putin bashing that is so typical here If you are interested in Russia and or President Putin, you will probably enjoy it.

    4. A certain kind of liar, when lying, will double down on enunciation, moving his or her mouth with extra vigor and precision for emphasis Russian President Vladimir Putin lies regularly and frequently, usually adopting a particularly aggressive or defensive physical stance, whether standing or sitting, to brace for the whopper he is about to emphatically impart I feel I speak for all Westerners who understand Putin in Russian when I say he is mystifyingly banal To me, at least, it is an absolute [...]

    5. The idea behind Mr Putin Operative in the Kremlin is enticing Many recent books have endeavored to tap into the world s interest in Russia s leader, with varying results An attempt at a psychological study might seem to stand apart, particularly when it so juicily breaks up Putin s personality into six categories, each which could hold a piece to the puzzle of this mysterious yet globally prominent individual It goes without saying that the shifty eyed kid with the greasy lock of blond hair star [...]

    6. Important read, but repetitive.The West doesn t understand Putin this book fills in the blanks However, the authors do repeat themselves The book could have used a better editor.

    7. I ran across this at the library while waiting for a film to start, and am glad I did Very interesting book about Putin as a character, and what events in his life likely shaped him and his political convictions Divided into sections of things that shaped him, there is Putin the Statist, the History Man, the Survivalist, the Outsider, the Free Marketeer, The Case Officer, and then general info about the system, his time under Yeltsin, and the Stakeholders Revolt Its not overly politicized and op [...]

    8. Five stars for a book about a politician seems a bit out of line But the thing is that Hill and Gaddy have done an convincing portrait of a mystery man he started in the KGB and the operation he runs the Kremlin and the bind that he is in, by working largely through the public record, sifting it and coming up with a portrait of Putin that is certainly compelling and plausible and ending with an analysis of how modern Russia works and the problems it faces This is a fine piece of sleuthing.

    9. Joe Biden once said this is the best book out there for understanding Vladimir Putin He s right Give it a read.

    10. Well organized, well thought out, and outstanding intimate details The research invested was phenomenal, I m impressed I loved how the chapters were organized into Putin s persona s Everything flowed logically and builded upon each other Overall, phenomenal read, and I hope to secure a personal copy for myself, instead of borrowing the library copy, because man oh man, do I have a lot of notes I want to take.

    11. Interesting material and ideas but poorly written and disorganised It took a lof of effort to wade throughdespite being interesting material.
