Russias New Politics: The Management of a Postcommunist Society (Cambridge Soviet Paperbacks) by Stephen White

Just as the Bolshevik revolution defined the early politics of the 20th century, the transition from communist rule is the landmark event of its final years. In this important new textbook, based on a wealth of references including interview and survey material, Stephen White offers a full, discriminating account of the dramatic process of change in what is still the worlds largest country. After an early chapter examining the Gorbachev legacy, the book analyses the electoral process, the powerful presidency, and the intractable problem of economic reform. Later chapters cover social divisions, public opinion, and foreign policy, and a final chapter places the Russian experience within the wider context of democratisation. Clearly written, with numerous figures and illustrations, this book takes up Russias story from the authors best-selling After Gorbachev to provide an unrivalled analysis of the politics of change in what is now the worlds largest postcommunist society.
