Comments The Putin Mystique: Inside Russia's Power Cult

  • Antenna

    A Moscow-based Russian-born journalist who was raised and educated in the States, Anna Arutunyan seems unusually well-placed to interpret Putin’s mystique in a way that Western readers can readily grasp. Although this book contains some fascinating information if you are prepared to make the effort to glean it, I was disappointed to find that the disjointed journalese makes for an often confusing and laborious read.We are familiar with photographs of a macho Putin displaying his muscular torso [...]


  • Mary

    Arutunyan writes not from a Western worldview, not mirroring, when she analyzes Russia's relationship with Vladimir Putin. Amen. She does not instinctively deride him as we do in the West where his style repels most of us paying attention. Although we have no use for him here, it seems they do there. She is intimidated by Putin, wary, yet resigned to his fit with Russia at this point in time. Russia is a vast continent of isolated, rather than communal, people which can and does result in author [...]


  • Kremlin

    Wasn't exactly what I had thought it would be about, but it was an interesting read. I wish it had focused more on Putin himself, instead of the people in the FSB and commoners. Surkov was the only staff from Putin's administration that it really mentioned in depth. I did enjoy the insight into Putin's personality, I liked how they described the scenes of seeing Putin in-person, and Putin's reactions to different events. The last sentence made me snort, "The Russian is in many ways rather alone, [...]


  • E.A. Amant

    A manager at work—we were doing some idiotic back and forth trash talk—shushed me in public. Teasing him, I had said that the island of Malta had been first settled by English retards. He was Maltese. These days, no one likes to hear the word ‘retard’. It was lame, I know, but I retorted with a shout, “Shut up, this ain't Russia!” And standing directly behind me was a Russian emigrant, new to the country, who took offence at my reckless cliché. However, whether naive or not, he knew [...]


  • Richard Block

    Bottoms Up'The fault, dear Brutus is not in the stars but in ourselves.' Julius CaesarAnna Arutunyan's Putin Mystique is unusual because it does not dwell on top down stories of Putin's actions, but on bottom up historical and cultural pressures that explain the underlying affection of Russians for Putin and other authoritarian leaders. Combining journalism (contemporary) with historical and cultural analysis makes this book accessible, unusual and involving. It takes a few chapters to hit strid [...]


  • Martin Mostek

    Time has come to read up, fast, about Russia, her ruler and her politics. And try to make some sense of all things that are going on for some months and went for years before many of as started paying any attention. Putin Mystique is useful and good read in at least two senses at the same time. First it is quite recent, with present edition finished in November of last year.Second and more important it is its idea and scope. Call it woman approach, intuition or simply thoughtfulness Arutunyan pu [...]


  • Justinas Rastenis

    It was well thought out book. I really enjoyed reading it as in my opinion the writing is a mix of publicistic and academic style and the writer took the best parts of both approaches. Although some people may find lack of theory based analysis of some of Putin's action but the book itself reveals many interesting details about not only about Putin's regime but also about Russian politics in general. It is really worth reading if you take interest in Russia or/and Putin.


  • Denise Sudbeck

    If Arutunyan is anywhere near right about the near current state of Russian politics, economy and culture (especially religious), this assessment should give the rest of the world reason to step back and reconsider. That is, reconsider before it tries to even comprehend, much less respond to the person and persona of Putin. The sheer breadth of corruption in law, business and politics is jaw-dropping.


  • Ionicescu Alexandru

    Lucrarea este interesanta nu atat pentru efortul de a contura portretul conducatorului rus, cat mai ales pentru felul in care personalitatea lui Putin se desprinde din afacerile, intamplarile si evenimentele, cele mai multe mustind de coruptie, ale ultimilor 15 ani.


  • Jack Oughton

    I had no idea things were quite so bad in post Soviet Russia. It doesn't give many glimpses into Putin himself, but it does cover the madness over which the man presides.


  • Amulya Saikia

    The book gives a peripheral view only. Need to read other books to get a clear idea.
