"This is a combination of a psychological study, modern politics, and modern history all rolled into one, as we in America struggle often times to understand Putin and what he does and how he operates. This book should help correct that deficit." -- Kevin Winter, Tulsa Book Review "This compelling study argues that while 'Putinism' may not be a full-fledged ideology like Soviet Marxism-Leninism, it should nevertheless be understood as a coherent regime type that can be emulated by autocrats in other world settings. At a time when global interest in this subject has never been higher, Taylor's new book is sure to find a very wide readership." - Stephen E. Hanson, Vice Provost for International Affairs, College of William & Mary "The Code of Putinism is a penetrating and incisive x-ray of Putin's rule, essential reading for anyone who wants to decode the central nervous system of power in Russia today. Brian D. Taylor writes with clarity and authority about how the Putin code binds together the state, the clans and key people. The book is like possessing a key to the Kremlin."- David E. Hoffman, author of The Billion Dollar Spy: A True Story of Cold War Espionage and Betrayal "This is a welcome anchor for understanding contemporary Russia. Grounded in Taylor's deep knowledge of the Russian state, careful social scientific analysis, and systematic evidence, this study is an important achievement." - Celeste A. Wallander, President and CEO, The U.S. Russia Foundation "Taylor makes a valuable contribution here. While warning that his research is not strictly academic, he develops an original approach to explaining the workings of this regime, which is both remarkably stable and clearly underperforming in effectiveness of governance." - Pavel K Baev - PRIO "The Code of Putin" packs more punch to the pound. It might just as easily have been titled "Decoding Putin" for what Mr. Taylor by linking them to the forces that have shaped and driven Russia " - Aram Bakshian Jr. - The Washington Times
