Politics in Russia is highly regarded for its comprehensive coverage, up-to-date scholarship, and comparative framework. This book is an authoritative overview of Russia’s contemporary political system and its recent evolution. Area specialist Thomas Remington focuses on four areas of change in this book–state structure, regime change, economic transformation, and identity–to offer a dynamic context for analyzing the post-Soviet era.
“If you want a single book for teaching Russian politics, this book is it. Remington’s comprehensive and nuanced knowledge of the Russian polity is matched by few scholars”–John Willerton, University of Arizona
Focusing on Russia's political institutions and processes since the end of the Soviet regime, Remington (Emory U.) identifies some of the forces affecting the development of the new system that has come into being, as well as the ways communist-era dynamics are influencing its evolution. The text covers events roughly through the middle of 2000. A central issue is the debate that has taken place in Russia and around the world following the country's economic depression of the 1990s. Remington presents the evidence and arguments about why things have turned out as they have, both economically and socially, and encourages readers to consider what, if anything, Russia's policy makers might have done differently.
