  • Daghestanby Robert Chenciner

    Taylor and Francis 2012; US$ 54.95

    Daghestan is home to more than 30 distinct peoples. Each has their own language yet they share a surprisingly homogeneous culture that has both withstood and absorbed centuries of external influences. A fascinating account of change and adaptation in the villages of this area. more...

  • Russia's Foreign Policyby Andrei P. Tsygankov

    Rowman & Littlefield Publishers 2013; US$ 42.99

    Now fully updated and revised, this clear and comprehensive text explores the past quarter-century of Soviet/Russian international relations, comparing foreign policy formation under Gorbachev, Yeltsin, Putin, and Medvedev. Drawing on an impressive mastery of both Russian and Western sources, Andrei P. Tsygankov shows how Moscow?s policies have... more...

  • Smashed in the USSRby Caroline Walton; Ivan Petrov

    Old Street Publishing 2013; US$ 9.99

    For forty years Ivan Petrov careered, stumbled, staggered and rampaged all over the vast Soviet empire. Homeless (an illegal condition in the communist utopia), in and out of prison camps, almost always drunk, and with a gift for hilariously sending up the tragic absurdities of Soviet life, Ivan was a real-life Svejk. This is his unforgettable story,... more...

  • Public Administration in Post-Communist Countriesby Saltanat Liebert; Stephen E. Condrey; Dmitry Goncharov

    CRC Press 2013; US$ 99.95

    Although it has been more than 20 years since Communism crumbled in Central and Eastern Europe and the Soviet Union, many scholars and politicians still wonder what the lifting of the Iron Curtain has really meant for these former Communist countries. And, because these countries were largely closed off to the world for so long, there has yet to be... more...

  • Russia?s Changing Economic and Political Regimesby Andrey Makarychev; Andre Mommen

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 54.95

    The book reveals the interconnection between social, cultural and political protest movements and social and economic changes in a post-communist country like Russia still dominated by bureaucratic rulers and "oligarchs" controlling all basic industries and mining activities. Those interests are also dominating Russia?s foreign policy and explain... more...

  • Rivers, Memory, And Nation-buildingby Dorothy Zeisler-Vralsted

    Berghahn Books 2014; US$ 95.00

    Rivers figure prominently in a nation's historical memory, and the Volga and Mississippi have special importance in Russian and American cultures. Beginning in the pre-modern world, both rivers served as critical trade routes connecting cultures in an extensive exchange network, while also sustaining populations through their surrounding wetlands... more...

  • Putin Reduxby Richard Sakwa

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 48.95

    This book builds on the strengths of the previous volumes by the same author to provide the most detailed and nuanced account of the man, his politics and his profound influence on Russian politics, foreign policy and society. However, this is not a new edition of the earlier books but is an entirely new work. The focus now is on the dilemmas... more...

  • Moscow in the Makingby Ernest Simon; Shena Simon; W. A. Robson; J. Jewkes

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 54.95

    This book, published in 1937, reported on a four week visit to Moscow in 1936 to study the making of Moscow as a showpiece Soviet capital. At its core was the 1935 General Plan for the Reconstruction of Moscow but the book was a study of planning in the Soviet rather than the Western sense. Thus it covered many aspects of the city?s social and economic... more...

  • The Russian Presidency of Dmitry Medvedev, 2008-2012by J. L. Black

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 54.95

    The term "tandem" was used to describe the Putin-Medvedev combination which ruled Russia from 2008 to 2012, when Medvedev was president and Putin prime minister. Many people saw Putin as the real wielder of power, with Medvedev as his puppet. Others, however, saw Medvedev as a visionary, someone who envisioned large scale schemes - even though these... more...
