Description

The Tragedy of Russia s Reforms presents a boldly original analysis of the collapse of the Soviet Union and the birth of the Russian state. The keys to understanding these events, the authors argue, are the prescriptions of Western transitologists, the International Monetary Fund, and advocates of economic shock therapy. These prescriptions allowed the nomenklatura and the financial oligarchs to acquire Russia s industrial and natural resources and to heavily influence the country s political destiny. In this long-awaited, sweeping interpretation, the authors skillfully place the contemporary Russian experience in the context of history, political theory, and Russia s place in the international system."
