Regional politics in Russia

Cameron Ross

Published by Manchester University Press

  • This innovative book, newly available in paperback, argues convincingly that Russia will never be able to create a viable democracy as long as authoritarian regimes are able to flourish in the regions
  • Combines thematic chapters with case studies of regions and republics including Novgorod, the Komi Republic, Tatarstan and Bashkortostan
  • Looks at the importance of sovereignty, federalism and democratic order, and considers the distinct problems of party-building in Russia's regions
  • The first major study of the actual processes of democratization in the republics and regions of Russia
