Since retiring from professional chess after ranking for twenty years as the world’s top player, Kasparov, author of How Life Imitates Chess, has led the pro-democracy movement in Russia—which included running for president in 2008—and since 2012 he has been chairman of the Human Rights Foundation. His new book is an urgent call to action in which he challenges the free world to recognize Putin as not just a repressive leader in Russia, but as a threat to global stability, one that can only be contained by a wide range of economic and diplomatic measures from abroad.

Garry Kasparov on America’s Endgame with Russia
Putin has been described as a chess master with the tactics he has used in region over the past 2 years. But chess legend and human rights activist, Garry Kasparov, says Putin is not a master chess player because he doesn’t play by the rules. In his new book, Winter is Coming: Why Vladimir Putin and the Enemies of the Free World Must Be Stopped, Kasparov argues that the worlds’ democracies must take an economic and diplomatic stand against Putin’s Russia to stop his global threat.
