Front Cover
Palgrave Macmillan, Jan 21, 2013 - Political Science - 278 pages
0 Reviews
In this original analysis of contemporary Russia, the author shows how Putin's regime is a completely new, right-wing political model that combines features of Mussolini's Italy with the 19th Century Bonapartism of Napoleon III and 21st Century Populism of Berlusconi. An essential read.
