R1,397 Discovery Miles 13 970 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

Who rules Russia? This question is generated by President Vladimir Putin's most ambitious reform program to date-his attempt since 2000 to reshape the Russian federation, centralize much of the power lost by the Kremlin to the eighty-nine regional governors during the 1990s, and strengthen his weak grip on Russia's institutions and political elite. In The Dynamics of Russian Politics Russian and Western authors from the fields of political science, economics, ethnology, law, and journalism examine the reform's impact on key areas of Russian life, including big business, law enforcement, corruption, political party development, health care, local government, small business, and ethnic relations. Volume I presents the historical context and an overview of the reforms, then tracks how Putin's plans were implemented and resisted across each of the seven new federal okrugs, or megaregions, into which he divided Russia. In particular, the authors analyze the goals and contrasting political styles of his seven commissars and how their often-concealed struggles with the more independent and determined governors played out. Volume II examines the impact of these reforms on Russia's main political institutions; the increasingly assertive business community; and the defense, police, and security ministries. It also analyzes how the reforms have affected such key policy areas as local government, health care, political party development, the battle against corruption, small business, ethnic relations, and the ongoing Chechen war. Together, the two volumes simultaneously reveal that Putin's successes have been much more limited and ambiguous than is widely believed in the West while offering detailed and nuanced answers to the difficult but crucial question: Who rules Russia?

The Rise and Fall of the The Soviet Economy - An Economic History of the USSR 1945 - 1991 (Paperback): Philip Hanson The Rise and Fall of the The Soviet Economy - An Economic History of the USSR 1945 - 1991 (Paperback)
Philip Hanson
R2,204 Discovery Miles 22 040 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

Why did the Soviet economic system fall apart? Did the economy simply overreach itself through military spending? Was it the centrally-planned character of Soviet socialism that was at fault? Or did a potentially viable mechanism come apart in Gorbachev's clumsy hands? Does its failure mean that true socialism is never economically viable?
 
The economic dimension is at the very heart of the Russian story in the twentieth century. Economic issues were the cornerstone of  soviet ideology and the soviet system, and economic issues brought the whole system crashing down in 1989-91. This book is a record of what happened, and it is also an analysis of the failure of Soviet economics as a concept.

This book is a collection of fascinating articles on the Soviet economy by an eminent economist. Most were written as current commentaries and were meant to report and to interpret developments in the Soviet economy under Gorbachev more or less as they occurred. Some other articles contain reflections on more than a particular event or a particular Soviet debate. In general, the articles were written for readers who were not necessarily either economists or Sovietologists, and they offer important insight to the yet ongoing transition of the Soviet economy to a market economy.
