Russian Politics by Stephen White
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Drawing upon a wealth of primary sources and existing scholarship, this new edition of Russian Politics provides a lively, comprehensive, and accessible account of Russian politics from Soviet times to the present day. Exploring the nature of Soviet rule--and the eventual collapse of the Soviet system--the book focuses on the institutions of government in contemporary Russia, including the dominant presidency, the political process, elections, and political communication. It also examines the maintenance of public order, the policy process, and Russian politics within the wider context of "democratization." Featuring illustrations, charts, tables, and a guide to further reading, this fascinating account details the process of political change in the world's largest country.
