Join us for the online launch of acclaimed graphic novelist Darryl Cunningham’s biography of Vladimir Putin.

Master manipulator or gangster? The malign thrust of Putin’s domestic and foreign policy is exposed in Cunningham’s latest page-turning biography including his early life, political career, the wars in Chechnya, Crimea and the Ukraine, the crackdown on human rights, Brexit, Trump—and the poisonings.

Cunningham shows how the West and its leaders have been culpable in aiding Putin’s rise – Obama being a particular example. By putting all these events into a timeline, Cunningham aims to show that Putin is opportunistic rather than the master manipulator people make him out to be: ‘He’s essentially a gangster and not a particularly smart one. We need to demythologise Putin if we are to beat him.’

SPEAKERS

Darryl Cunningham is the award-winning author of Psychiatric Tales, Science Tales, Supercrash (a New York Times bestseller), Graphic Science and Billionaires, which won the Best Graphic Nonfiction category in the Broken Frontier Awards 2019. Darryl lives in Wakefield, West Yorkshire.
