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.
