9780817992323: The Troubled Birth of Russian Democracy: Parties, Personalities, and Programs (Hoover Institution Press Publication)

The demise of communism in the Soviet Union could not have occurred without the activism of dissident, anticommunist leaders who created a climate that gave ordinary Russians the courage to stand up to and defeat communist control. But with communism ousted, what new form of government and what new leaders will emerge in Russia, a society that has never known democracy? Michael McFaul, a Western scholar studying at Moscow State University, and Segel Markov, an assistant professor at Moscow State University, interviewed anticommunist parties in the months preceding and immediately following the August 1991 attempted coup d'tetat. To examine the range of the political spectrum in Russia, they also talked to procommunist leaders who emerged to oppose Mikhail Gorbachev's reforms, nationalist and anti-Semitic leaders of movements such as Pamyat', labor unions, Christian movements, and organizations opposed to the division of the Soviet Union.

About the Author:

Michael McFaul, the Peter and Helen Bing Senior Fellow at the Hoover Institution, was sworn in as the United States ambassador to the Russian Federation on January 10, 2012. He is also a professor of political science at Stanford University, currently on leave.

Before becoming ambassador, he served for three years as the special assistant to the president and senior director for Russia and Eurasian affairs at the National Security Council.

Before joining the Obama administration, McFaul served as deputy director at the Freeman Spogli Institute and director of the Center on Democracy, Development, and Rule of Law. He was also a nonresident senior associate at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace.

Review:

"By providing detailed interviews with the leaders of major new political organizations, it makes a valuable contribution to western literature on this subject."
