Putin's Oil: The Yukos Affair and the Struggle for Russia
'Putin's Oil' is the story of Russia's energy wars and their consequences for Moscow and the world. Written by Martin Sixsmith, former BBC Moscow correspondent, this book focuses on Mikhail Khodorkovsky, owner of Yukos, once the country's oil firm and considered the key to Russia's economy. The book aims to be an account of what led to Khodorkovsky's arrest, and its aftermath and far-reaching consequences. Martin Sixsmith has gained access to many of the key players in the case. The resulting book is both a thriller and political examination of Vladimir Putin's struggle to control Russia's stores of oil, through political maneuvering, conspiracy, deception, betrayal, and espionage.
