A quarter century after the fall of the Soviet Union, Russia once again looms large over world affairs, from Ukraine to Syria to the 2016 U.S. election. Yet how power works in present-day Russiahow Vladimir Putin came to power and maintains his ruleremains opaque and often misunderstood.In The Putin System, Grigory Yavlinsky, a Russian economist and opposition leader, explains his countrys politics from a unique perspective, voicing a Russian liberal critique of the post-Soviet system that is vital for the West to hear.

Combining the firsthand experience of a practicing politician with academic expertise, Yavlinsky gives unparalleled insights into the sources of Putins power and what might be next. He argues that Russias dysfunction is neither the outcome of one mans iron-fisted rule nor a deviation from the supposedly natural development of Western-style political institutions. Instead, Russias peripheral position in the global economy has fundamentally shaped the regimes domestic and foreign policy, nourishing authoritarianism while undermining its opponents. The quasi-democratic reforms of the 1990s, the bureaucracys self-perpetuating grip on power, and the Russian elites frustration with its secondary status have all combined to enable personalized authoritarian rule and corruption. Ultimately, Putin is as much a product of the system as its creator. In a time of sensationalism and fear,The Putin System is essential reading for anyone seeking to understand how power is wielded in Russia.
