    One thought on “Putin: His Downfall and Russia's Coming Crash”

    1. The first 75 or so pages are a short bio of Vladimir Putin The last 20 pages deal with possibilities of Russia without Putin The middle has chapters on the Ukraine, the Arctic, China, oil and symbolism in Russia While the book seems to be pasted together articles, some have interesting material In the description of Putin s rise to power Richard Lourie has a better description of Putin s relationships with Boris Yeltsin and Antoly Sobchak than in the often cited Geller bio The Man Without a Face [...]

    2. The book chronicles Vladimir Putin s elevate to puissance, beginning with Putin s early days as an allegiant KGB agent Lourie examines the U.S.S.R s downfall and Russia s chaotic postcommunist political climate, which propelled Putin s ascension from the inconspicuous role of deputy chief of property, to first prime minister and later president His main argument is that Putin s Russia will eventually fall To prove this point, he goes in depth on Putin s interest in the Arctic, Ukraine, China, an [...]

    3. Do we really need another Putin biography I ll stop and let you ponder before I give my answer, which probably isn t the one you have in mind Yes, we do but only if it meets certain conditions Putin is still alive and shaping modern Russian politics, so there s that, but there s also a glut in the market for Putin biographies His story has been told and retold and distorted so many times that any newcomer book must bring something fresh to market be it new information or, often than not, a new [...]

    4. Giveaway The title of this book is deceptive, there is surprising little about Putin in this book despite the prominence of his name in the title Roughly, this book is 40% Russian history, 40% Russian geography, and 20% Putin biography If you re looking for a book about Putin and his history or current political situation, this is not the book for you However, if you are looking for a quick primer on where Russia has been, where it currently is, and a few ideas of its future, this is a very good [...]

    5. This was a give away The title is misleading, the book is a biography and history lesson than reason to why Putin will downfall and Russia will crash The biographical information was interesting.

    6. another i finish in the tree stand, 3 19 pee em today, the 2nd of december 2017 three stars i liked it informative, something to consider, the artic and the possibilities therepotential trouble spotskazakstan if i spelled that right this that the other at times anything but scholarly, outrageous opinion, something i d hazard lourie will be embarrassed about or not bet notere are none so blind as those who refuse to see i ll leave it at that but still, informatived speculative big on the speculat [...]

    7. Interesting 2 3 dedicated to learning about his background and history Part that I enjoyed the most was learning about the author s thoughts on the future expansion plans for domination in the North Pole etc and what or who comes next in Russia Thoughts on China and what makes Putin tick make this fascinating and well worth reading given the current political climate.

    8. Excellent book if you want to understand the KGB Putin and why he is one of the richest people in the world He was trained to have the KGB mindset in all his decisions for Russia Highly recommend this book I won this book from Giveaway Thank you.

    9. OK, I suppose this is something of a spoiler, but the title of this book is the book sales equivalent of clickbait in the sense that the book s contents is not much about Putin s downfall or a coming crash for Russia I just finished a book about Putin s Russia by Masha Gessen that was roughly two and half times longer than this book The Future Is History How Totalitarianism Reclaimed Russia and on the back book cover of this there is a blurb from Gessen, It takes deep knowledge of Russian histor [...]

    10. Lourie admits that it thwarted me at every turn Day after day my mind was as blank as the paper I stared at Months passed, years and, unfortunately, it does show, as the first 100 pages felt as if they were the result of the author playing 52 pick up with an extensive bibliography and some fascinating anecdotes about Russia and its history that he had accumulated over years However, for the average reader me, for instance it nevertheless became a mini history lesson filling in some gaps in my kn [...]

    11. This is a sobering read about a man who is his own Gulag Sphinx like, Putin gives nothing away, either metaphorically or physically He has amassed wealth far beyond the imagining of the Csars There was a man called Garoust Gulbenkian who traded oil from Baku, Azerbaijan He was called Mr 5% due to the fees or kick backs he demanded from those with whom he did business It is not known what percentage Putin expects from the oligarchs who run Russian financial and other companies Gazprom, its oil in [...]

    12. This book was far absorbing than I d expected, and served as a primer on Putin and his circle of oligarchs It gives great explanations of his possible motives not only for interfering with US electoral processes, but why and how d he would benefit from a docile and compliant USA Where the book falls short is in enumerating the consequences to Russia and the rest of the world if Putin should die in office or have reason to seek sanctuary away from Moscow but who can really foresee the future Ye [...]

    13. Richard Lourie has written an informative and important book Americans know so very little about Russia and its culture this small book will give readers a decent understanding of how Russia got to where it is today and what that means in terms of its domestic and foreign policies What the book does not deliver is anything like a biography of Vladimir Putin The book s title promises His Downfall and Russia s Coming Crash and yet we hear no intimation of this until very near the end Most of the b [...]

    14. Because of the author bias and hatred of President Trump I am not sure he could write a non fiction book The preface and final chapters are just full of the radical left bias Richard, I voted for Trump because of Obamacare In 2016 half of my pension went to paying my health care premiums and with the cost increase for 2017 Obamacare wants my whole pension Russians did not influence the elections But, between the preface and the last chapters the book was very interesting Learn about Russian His [...]

    15. I had high hopes that I would learn a new perspective on Putin but, I got only as far as the second page when the author wroteat the Russians may rue their ALLEGED decision to see Donald trump be President because Hilary Clinton, despite all her animus toward Moscow Seriously Uranium One 500,000 speaking fees for Billy Boy, etcI think i just wasted a precious 10 minutes of my life

    16. I could go 2 1 2 stars since I learned some info about Putin and modern Russia As others have mentioned, I feel the subtitle about downfall and crash not fulfilled I will be watching for developments in the Arctic Circle.

    17. My rating reflects my ignorance of the subject than anything else Easy to read and well reasoned Really enjoyed it.

    18. Fascinating look at Putin s past, his strengths, his weaknesses, and ultimately, the squandered opportunity his long rule has been.

    19. A deep and eye opening book.Understanding and explaining the Russian President today is complicated and deep Laurie nailed it A book to read and reread.
