Summary
This book offers a systematic analysis of Putin's three wars, placing the Second Chechen War, the war with Georgia of 2008, and the war with Ukraine of 2014-2015 in their broader historical context. Drawing on original Russian sources, Marcel H. Van Herpen analyzes in detail how Putin's wars were prepared and conducted, and why they led to allegations of war crimes and genocide. He shows how the conflicts functioned to consolidate and legitimate Putin's regime and explores how they were connected to a fourth, hidden, internal war waged by the Kremlin against the opposition. The author argues that the Kremlin -- relying on the secret services, the Orthodox Church, the Kremlin youth Nashi, and the rehabilitated Cossacks -- is preparing for an imperial revival, most recently in the form of a Eurasian Union. This book makes a case that Putin's regime emulates an established Russian paradigm in which empire building and despotic rule are mutually reinforcing
