This is the chilling account of how a low-level, small-minded KGB operative ascended to the Russian presidency and, in an astonishingly short time, destroyed years of progress and made his country once more a threat to her own people and to the world. Handpicked by the "family" surrounding an ailing and increasingly unpopular Boris Yeltsin, Vladimir Putin seemed like a perfect choice for the oligarchy to shape according to its own designs. Suddenly the boy who had stood in the shadows was a public figure, and his popularity soared. Russia and an infatuated West were determined to see the progressive leader of their dreams, even as he seized control of media, sent political rivals and critics into exile or to the grave, and smashed the country's fragile electoral system, concentrating power in the hands of his cronies. As a journalist living in Moscow, Masha Gessen experienced this history firsthand, and she has drawn on sources no other writer has tapped.--From publisher description.… (mehr)

Early in his Presidency, and after meeting personally with Vladimir Putin, George W. Bush felt he had developed a good relationship, and thought Putin to be a good man he could work with. Bush was quoted as saying he looked into Putin's eyes, and was able to get a sense of his soul. President Bush apparently had a very different look at Putin's soul than did Masha Gessen.

Gessen's book, "The Man Without a Face", gives quite an opposite view of Putin than Bush's initial gut-feel. Gessen, a Russian journalist, presents a number of reasons why we should not be comfortable with Putin. She documents numerous tales of corruption, and how he rules as an autocrat, how opponents are stifled or eliminated, and how he amassed quite a fortune for himself as Russian President. ( )

I imagine this does very well with Democrats who honestly believe that Russian hackers are the primary reason HRC didn't win the presidency. I have no doubt that Gessen has suffered tremendously, as have most Russians, but since I learned almost nothing from this book other than how some (U.S. style liberal, well-off, well-educated) Russians feel about Putin, I'm in the odd position of being angry with her. This book is not about Putin at all; it's a few New Yorkerish essays strung together with the intent to make you very happy you don't live in Russia (indeed, I am happy about that), but will also leave you wondering why on earth so many people support that state's current government. It's fine entertainment-journalism, but I was looking for history. ( )

Avslørende biografi om hvordan KGB/FSB plasserte Putin på topp i Russland. Bikker til tide over i det konpiratoriske når forfatteren spekulerer i hvorvidt sikkerhetstjenestene som Putin ledet stjal miliardbeløp fra offentlige lån eller om Tsjetjensk terror var iscenesatt av FSB for å øke oppslutningen om Putin.

One of those books that makes complex affairs understandable, The Man Without a Face is a well-written primer for anyone who wants to learn about how Putin has inserted Russia into a time machine aimed at its Soviet past. I came to Gessen’s book a neophyte who only knew Putin as a KGB bureaucrat; I put it down with an understanding of Putin’s M.O. in dealing with threats to his ego or position. Gessen does a fine job of linking together a number of events about which I recall reading—the Angleterre Hotel bombing, the Kursk, the massacre of schoolkids in Beslan—and arguing that each was another example of an opportunity Putin took to flex his (often exposed) muscles. Putin comes across as someone with no ideas, no imagination, no personality--the banality of evil. ( )

Gessen's clear, brave book makes a strong case that Putin is not merely turning a blind eye to embezzlement and skimming. He is, she asserts, an arch-practitioner.
