Democracy in a Russian Mirror, Hardback Book


What can we learn about democracy from the experience of post-Soviet Russia?

What can we learn about the prospects for democracy in Russia from the experience of 'really existing democracies'?

Must some 'pre-requisites', cultural or material, be fulfilled for democracy to become possible?

This book examines the current state of Russia and the prospects for democracy, posing several challenges to our understanding of democracy.

Thirteen contributors expand the debate over these questions, offering a variety of insights, interpretations, and conclusions vital to understanding the conditions of emergence and survival of successful democracies.
