This chapter examines the leadership of Vladimir Putin from the perspective of consolidative regimes in Soviet and post-Soviet history. It focuses on the New Economic Policy from 1921-27, period of ‘high Stalinism’, Brezhnev’s consolidative regime, and Yeltsin’s consolidative phase. It argues that Putin seeks — with varying levels of success and failure — to simultaneously liberalize much of the economy and to integrate it into global capitalism, while pushing the political system back towards greater authoritarianism, greater central control over regions, breaking the power of selected economic tycoons, and ensuring that Moscow retains dominant influence over the energy and resources sector.

Keywords:   Vladimir Putin, Russia, consolidative regimes, politics, Soviet Union, post-Soviet
