This volume analyzes the changing power relations in the Russian regions and in their relationship with the centre. Some papers analyze Russian federalism and the significant changes to it that Putin has introduced, both at the broad systemic level and in the case of individual regions. Others look at the distribution of power at the regional level, in particular the role of business in regional politics. The result is a rich survey of the state of federal relations in Russia.
GRAEME GILL is an ARC Professorial Fellow and Professor of Government and Public Administration at the University of Sydney, Australia. A Fellow of the Academy of Social Sciences in Australia, he has published on Soviet and post-Soviet Russian politics, the state, and democratization.

Editorial Reviews

"The maps and biblography are very helpful.  An excellent book... Highly recommended." —CHOICE
"To sum up, this is a cautiously written yet pioneering work dealing with the Russian--especially Siberian--economy, just before it burst recently with full force into international prominence.  The authors warn that the situation, from both the political and economic viewpoint, is still fluid."-- CHOICE
