Restoration in Russia: Why Capitalism Failed

Restoration in Russia: Why Capitalism Failed Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

It supplies an account of the former Politburo member, Boris Yeltsin—his rise to the presidency and the rifts with his parliamentary opponents, which led to the attack on the Russian White House on October 1993. There are portraits of Gavril Popov, the former mayor of Moscow and Vladimir Zhironovsky, the ultra-nationalist demagogue. The book provides analysis of the new Russia and its attempts to develop modern capitalism.

Synopsis:

This work presents a series of profiles of leading contemporary Russian politicians.
