The stunning story of Russia s slide back into a dictatorship and how the West is now paying the price for allowing it to happen The ascension of Vladimir Putin a former lieutenant colonel of the KGB to the presidency of Russia in 1999 was a strong signal that the country was headed away from democracy Yet in the intervening years as America and the world s other leading powers have continued to appease him Putin has grown not only into a dictator but an internationalthreat With his vast resources and nuclear arsenal Putin is at the center of a worldwide assault on political liberty and the modern world order For Garry Kasparov none of this is news He has been a vocal critic of Putin for over a decade even leading the pro democracy opposition to him in the farcical 2008 presidential election Yet years of seeing his Cassandra like prophecies about Putin s intentions fulfilled have left Kasparov with a darker truth Putin s Russia like ISIS or Al Qaeda defines itself in opposition to the free countries of the world As Putin has grown ever more powerful the threat he poses has grown from local to regional and finally to global In this urgent book Kasparov shows that the collapse of the Soviet Union was not an endpoint only a change of seasons as the Cold War melted into a new spring But now after years of complacency and poor judgment winter is once again upon us Argued with the force of Kasparov s world class intelligence conviction and hopes for his home country Winter Is Coming reveals Putin for what he is an existential danger hiding in plain sight
