about

This new textbook provides a comprehensive and up-to-date study of politics in postcommunist Russia. The book examines elections and voting, the presidency, economic reform, social change, public opinion, and foreign policy, and places Russia within the wider context of democratization. Clearly and accessibly written and intended for college-level students of Russian affairs, its wealth of detailed reference will also appeal to a specialist audience. The book is a sequel to the author's best-selling After Gorbachev, but is an entirely new book, unrivaled in its scope, wealth of reference, and topicality.
Stephen White is a clinical psychologist. he lives in colorado with his wife and son.
