Description - Russia-Lost in Transition by Lilia Shevtsova
Lilia Shevtsova searches the histories of the Yeltsin and Putin regimes and explores within them conventional truths and myths about Russia, paradoxes
of Russian political development, and Russia's role in the world. Russia-Lost in Transition discovers a logic of government in Russia-a political regime and the type of capitalism that were formulated during the Yeltsin and Putin presidencies and will continue to dominate Russia's trajectory in the near term.
