The Corporation: Russia and the KGB in the Age of President Putin
The twentieth century has entered history as an age of tyrants. Stalin, Hitler, Mussolini, Mao Zedong. In The Corporation, Yuri Felshtinsky exposes a new type of tyrant in Vladimir Putin. While dictators of the past have been self-motivated and self-appointed, Putin was handpicked for power by Russia’s newest ruling class, the Federal Security Service (FSB). As in the handover of executive power in any large corporation, it was the desire of the “shareholders” that Vladimir Putin would guarantee their rights in the new corporate republic.
