    The Sunday Times best seller.

    A Times and Sunday Times Book of the Year 2020.

    A Daily Telegraph Book of the Year 2020.

    The hacking of the 2016 US elections. The sponsorship of extremist politics in Europe. War in Ukraine. In recent years, Vladimir Putin's Russia has waged a concerted campaign to expand its influence and undermine Western institutions. But how and why did all this come about, and who has orchestrated it?

    This rigorous and revelatory audiobook explains how this happened, Putin's rise to power and how Russian black cash is subverting the world.

    In Putin's People, former Moscow correspondent and investigative journalist Catherine Belton tells the untold story of the rise of Vladimir Putin and the small group of KGB men surrounding him. Delving deep into the workings of Putin's Kremlin, Belton accesses key inside players to reveal how Putin replaced the free-wheeling tycoons of the Yeltsin era with a new generation of loyal oligarchs who in turn subverted their country's economy and legal system and expanded its influence in the West.

    The result is a chilling and revelatory expose of the KGB's renaissance - a story that began long ago in the murk of the Soviet collapse when networks of operatives were able to siphon billions of dollars out of Russia and into the West. After Putin's takeover of the economy, some of these networks acquired new flows of cash to realise their goals. Based on many years of research, Belton charts the relentless seizure of private companies and the installation of those closest to Putin into the richest, highest seats of power.

    Ranging from Moscow to London, Switzerland and Trump's America and introducing a colourful cast of characters, Putin's People is a gripping and terrifying account of how hopes for the new Russia went astray, with stark consequences for its inhabitants and, increasingly, the world.

    Kritikerstimmen

    "Putin's People is meticulously researched and superbly written; terrifying in its scope and utterly convincing in its argument. It is a portrait of a group of men ruthless in their power, and careless of anyone else. This is the Putin book that we've been waiting for." (Oliver Bullough, author of Moneyland)

    "Catherine Belton is quite simply the most detailed and best-informed journalist covering Russia. One hears so much grand punditry about the country, but if you want to know the terrifying facts, from the nexus of KGB, business and crime which was Putin's petri-dish, to the complex reality of the relationship with Trump, and if you want to see how all this combines into a whole new system, then this is the book for you." (Peter Pomerantsev)

    "A ground-breaking investigative history of the rise of Vladimir Putin, a revealing examination of how power and money intersect in today’s Russia. Catherine Belton has pulled away the curtain on two decades of hidden financial networks and lucrative secret deals, exposing the inner workings of Putin & Co. in remarkable and disturbing detail. A real eye-opener." (David E. Hoffman, author of The Oligarchs: Wealth and Power in the New Russia)

    An insider's view on Putin's world and values

    This book is vital to understand how Putin ticks and why he does what he does. His past in the KGB is scrutinised and his connections are still being reflected in his politics and decisions as a president, especially his foreign policy. As further reading I'd suggest an in-depth analysis of NATO's eastward expansion after the end of the Cold War and the treaty between NATO and Russia in this regard.

    Ups and downs but totally worth your time !!

    In the middle part of book, the contents might be a little dry from time to time BUT holy shit it is so worth your time !! This word is very much overused by now but some of the information in the book is quite literally mind-blowing. For someone interested in politics, history or just in general wants to know where our world is heading in the next decades this book is a must read

    On par with Bill Browder’s Red Alert, only even more frightening.

    This is a really scary book, brilliantly researched. I just hope the author is safe from the Gangster State. The bottom line is: in 2020 KGB rules the world through a Byzantian network of intertwined money stolen from Russian resources, worth billons of $$$, aiding and abetting western politicians and mafia soft power that can probably never be undone. Shame the reader shouts the text at Kalashnikov speed - too fast to absorb all the details.
