The Rebirth of Politics in Russia

by

The Rebirth of Politics in Russia Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

How was it that after seventy years of communist dictatorship, political life returned to Russia? This book addresses that question by focusing on the individuals, groups and movements that brought this about, their struggles against the Soviet regime, and the ways in which these struggles shaped Russia's political rebirth. As well as offering an original theory of Soviet society, the book is richly informed by the observations and interpretations of participants and close observers, and traces the process through the communist past and the revolution of 1991, to the political system of today.

Synopsis:

By focusing on the popular forces which accomplished Russia's political rebirth, rather than the reforms of the Soviet establishment, this book offers an original perspective on this critical period.
