This new textbook provides a comprehensive and up-to-date study of politics in postcommunist Russia. The book examines elections and voting, the presidency, economic reform, social change, public opinion, and foreign policy, and places Russia within the wider context of democratization. Clearly and accessibly written and intended for college-level students of Russian affairs, its wealth of detailed reference will also appeal to a specialist audience. The book is a sequel to the author's best-selling After Gorbachev, but is an entirely new book, unrivaled in its scope, wealth of reference, and topicality.

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2012. Hardback. Book Condition: New. New.. 232 x 156 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. 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 1999 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 world s 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 Russia s story from the author s best-selling After Gorbachev to provide an unrivalled analysis of the politics of change in what is now the world s largest postcommunist society.
