Democracy, Civic Culture and Small Business in Russia's Regions : Social Processes in Comparative Historical Perspective, Paperback / softback Book

Democracy, Civic Culture and Small Business in Russia's Regions : Social Processes in Comparative Historical Perspective Paperback / softback

Part of the Routledge Contemporary Russia and Eastern Europe Series series

Paperback / softback

Description

This book adopts a novel analytical approach to understanding how Russia's stalled democratisation is related to the incomplete liberalisation of the economy.

Based on extensive original comparative study of Russia's regions, the book explores the precise channels of interaction that create the mutuality of property rights, entrepreneurship, rule of law, norms of citizenship and liberal democracy.

It demonstrates that the extent of democratisation varies across regions, and that this variation is connected to the extent of liberalisation of the economy.

Moreover, it argues that the key factor in producing this linkage is the relative prominence of small business owners and their supporters in articulating their interests vis-a-vis regional and local administrations, especially through the institutionalisation of networks and business associations.

The book develops its key theses by means of detailed analysis of the experiences of four case study regions.

Overall, the book provides a major contribution to understanding the path of democratisation in Russia.
