'Richard Sakwa has long been renowned for his forensic studies of Russian politics. This time he focuses on how what he calls 'the dual state' - the 'permanent crisis' created by the ongoing struggle between the formal constitutional order and the shadowy 'administrative regime' - survived the stress test of transition from Putin to Medvedev as president in 2007-08. A must for any serious student of modern Russia.' Andrew Wilson, European Council on Foreign Relations
'Richard Sakwa, a leading British scholar on Russia's domestic politics, has written a meaty, well-researched, rather sprawling book that covers the years 2004-2009 ... Sakwa writes clear, very readable prose.' Peter Reddaway, International Affairs
'The Crisis of Russian Democracy is a highly recommendable book, especially because the next 'operation succession' is currently underway. Sakwa provides an analytical framework which is very useful for understanding current affairs in Russia.' The International Spectator
