@90@@20@"I read this book in one night, truly a page-turner. It leaves a profoundly scary impression: [Putin's court is the] real @18@House of Cards@19@." --Lev Lurie, writer and historian@21@@16@@16@@18@All the Kremlin's Men@19@ is a gripping narrative of an accidental king and a court out of control. Based on an unprecedented series of interviews with Vladimir Putin's inner circle, this book presents a radically different view of power and politics in Russia. The image of Putin as a strongman is dissolved. In its place is a weary figurehead buffeted--if not controlled--by the men who at once advise and deceive him.@16@@16@The regional governors and bureaucratic leaders are immovable objects, far more powerful in their fiefdoms than the president himself. So are the gatekeepers-those officials who guard the pathways to power-on whom Putin depends as much as they rely on him. The tenuous edifice is filled with all of the intrigue and plotting of a Medici court, as enemies of the state are invented and wars begun to justify personal gains, internal rivalries, or one faction's biased advantage.@16@@16@A bestseller in Russia, @18@All the Kremlin's Men@19@ is a shocking revisionist portrait of the Putin era and a dazzling reconstruction of the machinations of courtiers running riot.@16@@91@
