Russia's New Politics: The Management of a Postcommunist Society

封面
Cambridge University Press, 2000 - 386 頁
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 textbook, based on references including interview and survey material, Stephen White offers a full 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 analyzes 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. This book takes up Russia's story from the author's best-selling "After Gorbachev" to provide an analysis of the politics of change in what is now the world's largest postcommunist society.
