Editorial Reviews

Slavic Review
For those seeking clues regarding the weak economic performance of Boris Eltsin's Russia, this revealing edited volume offers considerable insight from the perspective of the oil industry. Sociologists and political scientists in particular should find much value in this work. Economists and energy-sector business analysts will also read this book with great interest. Students, both graduate and undergraduate, and from many disciplines, will benefit from exposure to these quite readable and sensible contributions.
Seer
So much is played close to the chest in contemporary Russia that it is difficult to get information, let alone interpret it. The study that David Lane initiated and has editied is therefore particularly welcome. The players and their games are much clearer than they were. The whole book is a useful study. It is both informative and thought-provoking on its declared subject. It also contributes to a clearer understanding of Russian society in transition.
The Journal Of Energy Literature
The future of Russian oil is one of the most intriguing subjects in international oil affairs at the beginning of the new millennium.
