'An excellent and important work' Literary Review

'Anyone concerned about how the bear will respond will find this historically informative account an accessible and stimulating guide' Sunday Express

'Putin and the Rise of Russia is a privileged insider's account of the Russian enigma at first hand. It's the best kind of political journalism' Observer

When the Soviet Union collapsed, the world was left wondering about its destiny. Russia is still an enormous power with a population exceeding 140 million, immense military resources and giant energy reserves - in short, a vast land full of promise and opportunity.

Russia has the potential to be a force of stability or a force of turmoil, but when it comes to global affairs, can she be persuaded to join the world order?

Professor Stuermer's authoritative and timely account considers a Russia going through a defining phase after the departure of Vladimir Putin. History is on the move: we face an open and challenging future in which Russia, for better or for worse, will play a key role.

MEDIA REVIEWS
An excellent and important work * LITERARY REVIEW *
As a scholar, author and journalist of long standing, Stuermer has ranged widely. The broader perspective, historical and geographical, that he brings to this period of Russian history is refreshing. Most of all, his book provides a salutary corrective to the transatlantic assumptions underlying so much writing in English, where the West is a monolith on one side opposed to a Russian monolith on the other * INDEPENDENT *
Authoritative, readable and concise * SPECTATOR *
Michael Stuermer, Die Welt's chief correspondent, has spent years studying, and conversing with, the former KGB officer who has steered Russia's fortunes in the post-Yeltsin years. The result Putin and the Rise of Russia is a privileged insider's account of the Russian enigma at first hand. It's the best kind of political journalism: history's first draft * OBSERVER *
We are lucky to have a commentator with Stuermer's talents and his distinguished journalistic and academic pedigree in Russian affairs * GLASGOW HERALD *
Stuermer shows great understanding of the history and politics in a country in which secret institutions and state organisations still hold considerable sway. He succeeds in giving the reader a better understanding of how politics in Russia works. * EDINBURGH EVENING NEWS *
Anyone concerned about how the bear will respond will find this historically informative account an accessible and stimulating guide * SUNDAY EXPRESS *
