The ninth iteration of this go-to text offers a comprehensive and critical discussion of the most important developments in Russian politics. Covering key areas in domestic and foreign politics, ranging from established topics such as executive leadership, parties, and elections to newly pertinent issues of nationalism, protest, and Russia's relations with its neighbours, the book reflects the changing nature of Russian politics in a world defined by ever-shifting balances of power and tensions over globalisation.As well as covering key developments, the contributors - an expert and diverse team from both sides of the Atlantic - address important challenges of interpretation and analysis when it comes to Russia. Perhaps most importantly, the contributors show readers how to analyse Russia as Vladimir Putin continues a presidency marked by volatile relations with Western countries.
This textbook has been designed to be accessible to readers studying Russian politics and government at any level, whether as part of a course on Russian politics or comparative politics more generally.
