From the Publisher
"Bill Bowring brings to his new book insights gained from a close study of Russian sources usually ignored by Western scholars, as well as a professional lifetime's fascination with Russian legal and political theory. His contextual discussions bring a new level of understanding of the importance of the landmarks on which he focuses. This book will be invaluable to anyone with an interest in Russia, her history, legal system and political development. The style is clear and accessible, making the book enjoyable to read as well is hugely informative. Very highly recommended."
Jane Henderson, King's College London; author of "The Constitution of the Russian Federation: A Contextual Analysis" (Hart 2011)
‘[Professor Bowring] has an expert knowledge of the situation regarding law and human rights there, and this book is an invaluable source of information on historic and current Russian law’ Jean Turner for Society for Co-operation in Russian and Soviet Studies (2013)
'The book is highly informative. The author maintains a keen eye for detail, sometimes unknown amongst Russian lawyers. His knowledge of current debates is surprisingly extensive and precise.' - Sergey Tretyakov, Lomonosov Moscow State University, Russia, for Russian Law Journal
