Nature and Development of the Modern State by Graeme J. Gill Nature and Development of the Modern State, Paperback (May 2003)

This text provides a broad-ranging introduction to the origins, role and future of the modern state and makes its own distinct contribution to tracing out continuities and changes especially in relation to the development of state capacity.

Origins of the Stalinist Political System by Graeme J. Gill Origins of the Stalinist Political System, Paperback (July 2002)

New and challenging perspectives on Soviet political development from 1917 to 1941.

Dynamics of Democratization by Graeme J. Gill Dynamics of Democratization, Paperback (April 2000)

The author assesses the main theories developed to account for and explain why and how authoritarian regimes give way to democratic ones. Taking issue with the elite-centred focus, he shows how understanding of democratization can be gained only if the role of civil society is taken into account.

Russia's Stillborn Democracy? by Graeme J. Gill Russia's Stillborn Democracy?, Paperback (March 2000)

This is the study of the failure of democracy in Russia after the collapse of the USSR. It traces the origins of that failure into the Soviet period, and shows how Russian political elites built a system which was more about maximizing their own power than opening the system up to popular control.
