Crucial to the understanding of breakdown and transition are analyses of changes within the internal relations of national elites. In this book, the authors define and detail the political elites under state socialism, showing how the elites under Gorbachev were profoundly fragmented. They further reveal how, with the maturation of state socialism, new class interests arose which were cultivated by, and in turn influenced, the Gorbachev leadership. The authors put forth the argument that these class interests are strongly represented in today's political "settlement" in Russia. They consider various interpretations of what has led to Russia's current condition, including the idea that "executive" capital is more important than political capital and has been reproduced in the transition from communism.
