How Russia is Not Ruled: Reflections on Russian Political Developmentby Allen C. Lynch
Pub. Date: 01/17/2005
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
As Russia tries to establish the foundations of a stable and productive market-based economic system, it must determine the importance of the state to its prospects. What kind of political order corresponds to the challenges that Russia faces in the post-Soviet period? This analysis argues that geography matters a great deal and the state remains central in compensating for the austere implications of economic geography for Russia's economic prospects under market circumstances.
