Summary, etc.: "This electrifying and supremely timely book by leading Russian expert Richard Lourie explores Putin's failures, missed opportunities, and probable future moves. Readers discover, for example, where Putin's next land grab is likely to be. Questions are asked and answered about Putin's nefarious plans for the Arctic, as well as along the border with China, which presents other intriguing dilemmas for the man from the KGB. Donald Trump's unexpected and bizarre election win gives Putin extraordinarily dangerous options. Putin: His Downfall and Russia's Coming Crash is an essential read for anyone bewildered and dismayed by current events."--Jacket.
