Over the last hundred years, Russia has undergone a succession of failed projects of state construction - from Tzarist modernisation to Soviet state socialism to liberal democratic market capitalism. This new book introduces these vastly different projects and explains their failure in order to illuminate the common problems of balancing social and economic transformation with political stability that Russia's rulers have faced during the twentieth century.
Russia: A State of Uncertainty traces Russia's complex historical development in the last century, as well as its recent political troubles and economic misfortunes, and its place in the contemporary international system. Providing up-to-date information on Russian political developments, including the elections of 1999 and 2000, Robinson assesses the chances of future projects of political and economic reconstruction. Written in a clear and accessible way, this book will be an invaluable text for students learning about Russia for the first time, as well as anyone interested in the state and history of Russia.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"an interesting look at the foundation of the Russian presidency. The whole description of yeltsin's political strategy is instructive and enlightening. The book supplies a useful chronology of Russia in the twentieth century."
-choice, December 2002
""Russia: A State of Uncertainty should be adopted as a textbook in undergraduate courses on Russian politics and history, and would also prove interesting to general readers who want an engaging basic primer on the Russian state."
-"Canadian Journal of History
