Overview

Russia held its first multiparty election in over 75 years in the hope that it would usher in a new democratic political order. However, the success of right-wing populist Vladimir Zhirinovsky's Liberal Democratic Party of Russia and other anti-reform forces shocked the world. This work analyzes the background, events and main players of the elections, and looks at their significance for the Russian political system. As the first volume-length study of the December 1993 voting, it provides historical, political, regional and sociocultural interpretations of the elections and their results. Contributions are made by leading scholars, as well as by some promising newcomers to the field, from the UK, Russia, Eastern Europe and Australia.
