"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.
