Putin & Russia: The Rise of a Dictator
Foyalty 51

Putin & Russia: The Rise of a Dictator (Paperback)

£16.99
Pre-order for despatch on publication.

Synopsis

Author of more than six acclaimed graphic novels and well-known for his economical drawing and clear,explanatory narrative, Cunningham shows how the West and its leaders have been culpable in aiding Putin's rise-Obama being a particular example. Areas covered include Brexit and Trump; the crackdown on human rights, especially on homosexuality in Russia;and the poisonings-among them, journalist Anna Politkovskaya in Russia, Alexander Litvinenko in London, Sergei Skripal in Salisbury.



By putting all these events into a timeline, Cunningham aims to show that Putin is opportunistic rather than the master manipulator people make him out to be: 'He's essentially a gangster and not a particularly smart one. We need to demythologise Putin if we are to beat him.'
