Bandits, Gangsters and the Mafia : Russia, the Baltic States and the CIS since 1991 Paperback / softback

Description

During the 1990s, the "roving bandits", big business or the oligarchs, stole Russia.

They gained influence over President Yeltsin and his government, and gradually shaped policy in their own interests.

In this first comprehensive account to explain why Russia took the course it did, Martin McCauley examines the period through the prism of government, including Yeltsin's shadow government, and looks at the military, police, security and intelligence services.

Relations between Moscow and the regions, industry, agriculture, social policy and foreign policy are also explored.
