Putin's People – How the KGB Took Back Russia and then Took on the West
When the Soviet Union collapsed in the late 1980s, no one suspected that a former KGB agent would maintain his position as Russian president for decades. But Vladimir Putin is not an autocrat. His power rests on a network of former Soviet KGB agents whose influence extends far beyond Russia.
The author has been in contact with numerous former Kremlin insiders. She sheds light on a mafia-like web of control, corruption and obsession with power – and how it affects us.
