The tough-talking ultraconservative brawls with fellow Russian legislators, men and women alike. He has raucous bouts of public drinking, and is photographed slam-dancing in a Moscow discotheque. He spits and throws rocks at Jewish protesters and threatens to kill his enemies with his "atomic pistol." In 1991 he stunned the western world by finishing third in his country's presidential race. His Liberal Democratic party - with a flag that includes Finland and Alaska on its map - has shown unexpected strength in parliamentary elections. Zhirinovsky appeals to Russians bitter over the economic and social chaos that followed the fall of communism. Loss of security. Homelessness. Poverty. Hunger. The decline in world stature. And he appeals to the armed forces who feel abandoned by the system. Vladimir Zhirinovsky promises to reunify the Soviet Union by 1999. He threatens to redraw the boundaries of Europe and Asia, eliminating Austria, the Baltic States, Bosnia, the Czech Republic, and Pakistan. He also calls for the reclamation of Finland and Alaska. And he would be the absolute leader. My Struggle sets out in Vladimir Zhirinovsky's own words, his plans and goals. Here is the startling, often moving autobiography of a childhood deprived of love and attention that shaped this paradoxical man, and may someday reshape the world.

    Once I watched a short clip from the Russian political talk show on TV, Поединок, featuring Vladimir Zhirinovsky. The show, whose title roughly means "duel," features people of different political views arguing vociferously as the host moderates/looks on. I'd always heard Zhirinovsky was crazy, but watching this clip, I found myself agreeing with him. Thinking that perhaps he isn't crazy, I picked up this book—and must say, it was a stroke of luck he said something I agreed with because most of Once I watched a short clip from the Russian political talk show on TV, Поединок, featuring Vladimir Zhirinovsky.

I'd always heard Zhirinovsky was crazy, but watching this clip, I found myself agreeing with him. Thinking that perhaps he isn't crazy, I picked up this book—and must say, it was a stroke of luck he said something I agreed with because most of this book is totally insane. The dude really is crazy. He's contradictory in so many places: for example, he's against communist one moment, and in the next he wants a planned economy. The book is poorly written, or poorly translated, or both, so I'd advise you to save your time. If you want a fascinating first person account of a Russian politician's life, read First Person instead. It's better written and more relevant, considering Putin's influence on Russia and the world.

    the title says it all. A scary look into the mind of someone who thought along the same lines as Hitler
