'Well-informed, well-written, and copiously documented, Stephen White's latest book is an impressive (and disturbing) portrayal of politics and society in post-Soviet Russia ...' Archie Brown, Emeritus Professor of Politics, Oxford University and author of The Rise and Fall of Communism
'Stephen White's thoroughly researched, well-crafted, and parsimonious text is the best single overview I have encountered of the politics of contemporary Russia. It shows how Russia's post-communist system has stabilized, largely in an authoritarian mold, without yet being frozen in that mold.' Timothy J. Colton, Chair, Department of Government, Harvard University
'Stephen White has long been one of the leading experts on the former Soviet Union and contemporary Russia, and here he has distilled much of his vast knowledge into a single volume that provides what is perhaps the best analysis of Russian politics available today ... This is an excellent book that can be strongly recommended for both the serious student of Russia and the general interested reader.' Peter Shearman, Political Studies Review
