Sakwa's Russian Politics and Society is the most comprehensive study of Russia's post-communist political development. For this third edition, Sakwa has updated the text throughout to include details of Yeltsin's second term and the impact on Russian politics of the rise of his successor, Vladimir Putin.
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.
Also contains a substantially expanded bibliography and appendices showing election results, chronology, social and demographic figures and recent census data.This is the ideal introductory textbook: it covers all the key issues; it is clearly written; and it includes the most up-to-date material available.
