Charting the transformation of Vladimir Putin from a passionate fan of the West and a
liberal reformer into a hurt and introverted outcast, All the Kremlin’s Men is a historical
detective story, full of intrigue and conspiracy. This is the story of the political battles that
have taken place in the court of Vladimir Putin since his rise to power, and a chronicle of
friendship and hatred between the Russian leader and his foreign partners and
opponents. Russia's most prominent independent journalist Mikhail Zygar has had
unprecedented access to people who are either currently or were formerly allied with
Putin, but have only now agreed to reveal their impressions of the powerful president and his circle of power.

Zygar's in-depth interviews include Putin’s press secretary Dmitry Peskov, Deputy
Prime Minister Igor Shuvalov, former finance minister Alexei Kudrin, former Kremlin chief
of staff Alexander Voloshin, former mayor of Moscow Yuri Luzhkov, former presidential
candidate Mikhail Prokhorov, opposition leader Alexei Navalny,former presidents of
Ukraine and Georgia Viktor Yushchenko and Mikhail Saakashvili, and many other key
Russian and Western politicians and diplomats. For many people from Putin’s closest
circle, it was the first time they could tell their stories. Each chapter has a main character,
who gives an insight into the origins of Vladimir Putin’s transformation. Cumulatively, All
the Kremlin’s Men explains to the English-speaking audience what has happened to
Russia, what the role of the West is in its destiny, and how this destiny could play
out going forward. It is a delicious portrait of the strangeness of modern Russia, a country
swirling with intrigue and paranoia, peppered with fateful missteps and confusion, and the
brooding, volatile, magnificently unpredictable figure of Vladimir Putin.
