Elections Without Order: Russia's Challenge to Vladimir Putinby Richard Rose
Synopses & Reviews
Russians want free elections and order. Although their political elites have had no difficulty in supplying candidates and parties in the last decade, predictability in everyday life and the rule of law have suffered. This book is about Russia's attempt to achieve democratization backwards, by holding elections without having created a modern state. This dilemma is the challenge that Russia presents to Vladimir Putin.
Russians want free elections and order. This 2001 book presents unrivalled survey data on the challenge facing Putin.
Russians want both free elections and order. In the past decade Russia's political elites have had no difficulty in supplying a great choice of candidates and parties. But order--a sense of predictability in everyday life and the rule of law--has been in short supply.

The authors draw on unrivalled survey and polling data, presented concisely and clearly.
