Russia’s Domestic Security Wars: Putin’s Use of Divide and Rule Against His Hardline Allies

Russia’s Domestic Security Wars: Putin’s Use of Divide and Rule Against His Hardline Allies By Peter Reddaway
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 | 118 Pages | ISBN : 3319773917 | 2.74 MB

The book is a case study of Putin’s use of the tactics of divide and rule in relation to, particularly, the hard-line elements among his supporters. It illustrates Putin's methods of staying in power vis-à-vis groups that might put too much pressure on him, or who might even try to oust him. The project also suggests that Putin’s survival tactics have brought Russia to a deeply corrupt, state-dominated form of authoritarianism, which lacks deep institutional roots and will probably lead in due course to some form of state collapse. This work will appeal to a wide audience including political scientists, academics, graduate students, and everyone who is interested in contemporary Russian politics.

A pochi chilometri da Mosca, nel quartiere della Rublevka vive il Gotha della politica, della finanza e, più semplicemente, della ricchezza russa. Risiedere dietro ai muri altissimi che circondano ville più o meno sontuose è segno di appartenenza all'Olimpo. Di appartenenza al Gioco, come lo definisce l'autore. Che del Gioco studia le origini (dagli zar ai giorni nostri, passando per Lenin e la nomenklatura sovietica), osserva i partecipanti (la fauna locale: come e perché è diventata tale, come si comporta dentro e fuori la recinzione, come giustifica, o non giustifica, le proprie scelte, come trascorre le proprie giornate), cerca - e non sempre trova - le regole (non scritte, ma rigidamente attestate).
