Bringing together leading Russian specialists from around the globe, this is a key assessment of the leadership of Vladimir Putin as he embarks upon his second term in the Kremlin. Leading Russia highlights the ambiguities and contradictions inherent in the project of a leader using traditional heavy-handed methods to create a modern and efficient political and economic system.

Review:


"...a notable tribute to Brown and a valuable addition to the literature on contemporary Russian politics. The quality of the essays in Leading Russia testifies to the stature of Archie Brown in the community of scholars of Soviet and post-Soviet politics, and to the enduring centrality of one of Brown's long-term interests-the problem of political leadership." -- The Russian Review


"This is a significant book..."--Foreign Affairs


"Provides a sweeping survey of Putin's rule, covering his various reforms, relations with the oligarchs, development of regional policy, and the evolution of foreign ties. This book will be helpful to scholars seeking more depth in analyzing Putin's leadership than that provided in existing journalist's accounts." --Slavic Review

"The collection is a model of balanced discussion, avoiding the censorious tone that comes so easily to some failed democratizers, while providing detailed analysis of key areas of policy and political practice that fits naturally into the democratic evolutionist camp."--Comparative Politics

Book Description Oxford University Press, United Kingdom, 2005. Hardback. Condition: New. New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Leaders and leadership continue to dominate Russia s political development. Like his predecessors in the Kremlin, Vladimir Putin has made a crucial impact on the substance and style of Russian politics. His efforts to use traditional tools of state power to manage democracy and market capitalism have had mixed effects on both. Leading Russia investigates the ambiguities and contradictions of Putin s rule from four perspectives. The volume first considers his leadership in the context of Russia s convulsive historical cycle of revolutionary transformation, breakdown, consolidation, and stagnation. The study then analyses how normative and institutional components of democracy have fared under Putin s regime of stronger executive control. It proceeds to examine the strengths and weaknesses of presidential power vis-a-vis bureaucratic, regional, and corporate groups. The volume concludes with two assessments of the strategic direction in which Putin is taking Russia. They explore the tensions between bureaucratic-authoritarian trends and Putin s apparent commitment to electoral democracy, market capitalism, and alignment with the West. The book helps to deepen our understanding of the cultural and institutional factors shaping Putin s leadership approach and policy priorities. More widely, it sheds light on the complexity of the relationship between post-communist leadership, democracy, and economic modernization. Seller Inventory # APC9780199276141
