Book Review :  

“Critiquing the West’s obsession with Vladimir Putin’s “cool calculation and prickly machismo,’ [Russia Without Putin] offers a more searching appraisal of the institutions that buttress his Presidency, the aspirations that galvanize his supporters, and the forces that drive his capitalist economy.”

—New Yorker


“In Russia Without Putin, Tony Wood dares to violate stock conventions by asking not just what Russia would look like if we looked beyond its figurehead, but if we saw Russia as it really was: an intermediate world power held together by an unsustainable economic and political model, and with several potential crises looming on the horizon ... A crucial contribution.”

—Branko Marcetic, Jacobin
