Book News Annotation:

Focusing in particular on environmental politics, Henry (government and legal studies, Bowdoin College) analyzes the factors that promote and inhibit different types of citizen mobilization in Russia and explores the implications of emerging patterns of mobilization for the development of civil society and for the course of Russia's politics. Positing that all social organizations pursue sometimes reinforcing and sometimes clashing goals of locating resources needed for sustaining the organization, instituting more favorable state policies on particular issues, and creating a political and social arena more conducive to future change, she explores how these organizations navigate Russia's scarce resources and relatively closed political opportunity structure and balance the preferences of local constituents, Russian authorities, transnational environmental organizations, and foreign donors. She examines how different strategic choices within this environment lead to different organizational forms and how these forms, in turn, help shape outcomes related to the goals mentioned above.
