Top ten books on Vladimir Putin's Russia

Michael Honig is a former surgeon and lives in England. The Senility of Vladimir P. is his first novel. One of Honig's ten top books on Vladimir Putin's Russia, as shared at the Guardian:
Putin’s Kleptocracy by Karen Dawisha

Published in the US but not in Britain – for fear of the UK’s tyrant-friendly libel laws – American academic Karen Dawisha’s book provides a dispassionate, extensively researched account of Putin’s early criminality and the descent of the Russian government into an engine of organised crime. A must-read for anyone asking if the Putin regime is really as corrupt as people say and who wants to see the balance of evidence for themselves.
