about

In this book Mary McAuley explores the political reactions of elites and society in the Russian Federation in the years following the collapse of Communist party rule and the breakup of the USSR. Spanning two republics and four regions, the book offers the first in-depth study of the impact of change in the regions as well as at the center. Using first-hand research, it provides a unique study of the response of a society to the breakdown of the established political order, and will appeal to students of comparative politics generally, as well as to all those interested in transition in Russia.
