  • “This book is the most useful compendium for teaching contemporary Russian politics currently on the market…. Recommended.”

    "An impressive collection of prominent scholars provide detailed analyses of the critical institutions that comprise the Russian state, the wider relationships between the Russian state and its citizens, and specifi c policy formulations regarding the economy, foreign relations, defense, and security.... It will be appealing to anyone searching for a relatively crisp, yet extensive account of Russia’s incomplete and contradictory process of political and economic reform since the collapse of the Soviet Union, with a focus on the Putin era. As such, it would serve as an excellent foundational text for a Russian politics course."

  • Description

    In Developments in Russian Politics 8, leading experts provide a broad-ranging assessment of Putin's third term in power. All essays are either new or comprehensively rewritten for this volume, and  cover executive power, parliamentary politics, the electoral process, the rule of law, foreign policy, the economy, and the military. They also address matters concerning Russia's media and political communication in the digital age; society and social divisions; protest and challenge; and future trajectories for Russian politics. Developments in Russian Politics remains the first-choice introduction to the politics of the world’s largest nation.
