Flawed Succession: Russia's Power Transfer Crises

Flawed Succession: Russia's Power Transfer Crises Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This authoritative study examines twentieth-century Russia's four key succession crises: after Stalin's death, throughout Khrushchev's primacy, during the economic and geographic implosion of the USSR, and the end of the Yeltsin presidency. The distinguished contributors to this volume argue that the common denominator throughout has been the absence of a transparent, nonarbitrary, and generally accepted mechanism for the transfer of political power. As a result, aspirants for leadership have sought legitimation through artificial means, leading to particularly vicious power struggles. As Moscow reemerges as a major international actor, its internal battles trigger aftershocks well beyond Russia's borders. Drawing on newly available primary sources, this book offers essential insights for both practitioners and students of policy. Book jacket.
