Summary

Richard Sakwa's Russian Politics and Society is the most comprehensive study of Russia's post-communist political development. It has, since its first publication in 1993, become an indispensable guide for all those who need to know about the current political scene in Russia, about the country's political stability and about the future of democracy under its post-communist leadership. For this second edition, Richard Sakwa has updated the text throughout and restructured its presentation so as to emphasize the ongoing struggle for stability in Russia over the last five years. This edition includes the full text of the constitution of 1993; new material on recent elections, the new parliament (State Duma and Federation Council), the development of the presidency and an evaluation of the country's political evolution during the 1990s; up-to-date details on the development of a federal system and on local government; and a thoroughly updated bibliography.
