Partnering with an editor would have made this book an easier read. The author is clearly well-versed but rambled at times (with an odd note of referring to Russia as the fatherland, when it's traditionally called the motherland.) Putin himself is not introduced until Chapter 4. That said, it's a scholarly attempt at understanding Russia's history, self-image, European/Asian ties, and thoughts on how a "post-Putin" government may/may not evolve.

"Putin" in French means "whore" - the rest follows. He is playing a new Cold War comedy to serve the West's goals - acquire more modern arms against ghost "enemies." And who is the loser? The crowd is, who believe in this show as if it was real. Not so long ago Putin ate pecan pie on the Bush's ranch; today he is palying the role of "strong, bad guy." Tomorrow he may play something else. And what about churches that lead us toward "God's Kingdom?" Well, I am not inventing this, but Dr. Bill Deagle, PhD said on talk radio in 2007 that a pastor, a relative of his told him the police gives instructions to pastors on what to tell the crowd in church. That's God's word, eh?
