Putinomics: The Price of Power in Russia
Putin’s government is usually associated with incompetence and corruption. Yet, the Kremlin has managed to deploy power so ruthlessly at home and abroad in part because of its ability to muster economic resources. Miller traces the economic policies that underwrite Russia’s expansive foreign policy and Putin’s continued control over the country’s political system.

He is also the Associate Director of the Brady-Johnson Program in Grand Strategy at Yale University.
