Revue de presse :

[A]lively and absorbing study.... [Roxburgh] is especially well placed to tell the story of how the west s early enthusiasm for Putin turned sour. --Luke Harding, Guardian

[Written] with admirable even-handedness and insight...The Strongman is not only political history; it is informed by the author s close acquaintance with many of the prime players...Every chapter of this book is worth reading. --Mary Dejevsky, Independent

A sober assessment of Putin years, illuminated by Angus Roxburgh's first-hand experience and long acquaintance with Russia --Bridget Kendall, BBC diplomatic correspondent

We need an insider to give us some insight into what has really been going on since 1999, when Putin went from unknown to acting president. It is fortunate then that we have Angus Roxburgh... fair, nuanced and well written...His account of the complete mutual incomprehension between his employers, Ketchum, and the Russians they worked with is fascinating. --Sunday Telegraph

...an old Russian hand. [Roxburgh] takes us behind the curtain of the Kremlin press section....he is at his best in a chapter on fraught Georgian-Russian relations, capturing the culpability on all sides. --Stephen Kotkin, TLS

'...marshals new and valuable details about Putin s life and rule.' --Foreign Affairs

...an old Russian hand. [Roxburgh] takes us behind the curtain of the Kremlin press section....he is at his best in a chapter on fraught Georgian-Russian relations, capturing the culpability on all sides. --Stephen Kotkin, TLS

Présentation de l'éditeur :

Russia under Vladimir Putin has proved a prickly partner for the West, a far cry from the democratic ally many hoped for when the Soviet Union collapsed. Abroad, he has used Russia's energy might as a foreign policy weapon, while at home he has cracked down on opponents, adamant that only he has the right vision for his country's future. Former BBC Moscow correspondent Angus Roxburgh charts the dramatic fight for Russia's future under Vladimir Putin - how the former KGB man changed from reformer to autocrat, how he sought the West's respect but earned its fear, how he cracked down on his rivals at home and burnished a flamboyant personality cult, one day saving snow leopards or horse-back riding bare-chested, the next tongue-lashing Western audiences. Drawing on dozens of exclusive interviews in Russia, where he worked for a time as a Kremlin insider advising Putin on press relations, as well as in the US and Europe, Roxburgh also argues that the West threw away chances to bring Russia in from the cold, by failing to understand its fears and aspirations following the collapse of communism.
