Books By Author Vladimir Shlapentokh

Freedom, Repression, and Private Property in Russia by Vladimir Shlapentokh Freedom, Repression, and Private Property in Russia, Hardback (September 2013)

Demonstrates how the emergence of private property and a market economy after the Soviet Union's collapse enabled a degree of freedom while simultaneously supporting authoritarianism.

Soviet Union by Vladimir Shlapentokh Soviet Union, Hardback (December 2008)

The book analyzes Soviet society as a 'hard reality', emphasizes the varying perceptions of it in the Soviet Union and the US, and insists that, while glorifications of the Soviet reality have been useful, the most accurate descriptions of this reality were critical.

From Submission to Rebellion by Vladimir Shlapentokh From Submission to Rebellion, Paperback (September 1998)

"Written in the spirit of comparative and historical analysis, this book addresses the relationship between the center and its provinces--an important issue in any society--using Russia as a case study."

Decline and Fall of the Soviet Union by Vladimir Shlapentokh Decline and Fall of the Soviet Union, Paperback (January 1997)

This study analyzes the ordinary functioning of the Soviet system from Stalin's death through the Soviet collapse and Russia's first post-Soviet decade.
