Vladimir Putin has made a mockery of Russia’s nascent democracy by manipulating his way back to the nation’s Presidency, all the while ruthlessly putting down his critics and opponents. Moscow journalist Masha Gessen’s brilliant and compelling biography of Putin shines a light on his brutal modus operandi. She talks to Jane Hutcheon.
