Full Description

This riveting graphic novel biography chronicles Vladimir Putin's rise from a mid-level KGB officer to the autocratic leader of Russia and reveals the American missteps that paved his way there. American politicians and pundits have portrayed Vladimir Putin as an evil mastermind, hatching meticulously organized plots to destroy America from the shadows. That image of Putin is a lie, and Americans believe it at their own peril. In Accidental Czar, Andrew Weiss, the former director for Russian, Ukrainian, and Eurasian Affairs on the National Security Council, and Eisner-winning cartoonist Brian "Box" Brown present a new picture of Russia's leader and dispel the myth of Putin as a puppet master who carefully controls every string. The truth? Putin is a man whose life has been dominated by chaos, which has made him competent at playing the hand he's been dealt. The only thing Putin is truly a master of is his public image. But now, that illusion will be shattered.
