Reviews

'Gel'man and Ross have put together a dream team of specialists on Russia's regions, and they do not disappoint. This volume presents some remarkable new approaches and findings, ranging from a fresh analytical framework for studying subnational authoritarianism to evidence that regional authoritarianism is negatively correlated with pre-Soviet patterns of Western protestant missionary settlement. The volume provides an important assessment of Putin's impact during the 2000s, and draws some preliminary conclusions on whether Medvedev represents anything new. Students of all aspects of Russian politics and comparativists interested in regime change will each find much of interest here.' Henry Hale, The George Washington University, USA 'This excellent collection of essays provides a wealth of new and stimulating insights into the state of politics in Russia's regions. Theoretically sophisticated and empirically rich, they are a must read for anyone interested in this area.' Graeme Gill, University of Sydney, Australia '... edited by two of the foremost experts in writing today about Russia's subnational regions. Vladimir Gel'man is a political scientist at the European University of St. Petersburg and Cameron Ross is in the Department of Politics at the University of Dundee. The affiliations are worth noting because they are indicative of one of this volume's strengths, namely that it represents the collaborative efforts of Western social scientists with a new generation of Russian scholars who are fully conversant in the methods and theories of modern social science.' The Russian Review 'This edited volume is a carefully crafted and refreshing empirical collection of twelve studies, each of which explores major aspects of the intriguing topics of sub-national authoritarianism in contemporary Russia, dealing simultaneously and effectively with the two conceptual elements in the room: the continuing myth of Russian federalism, and its on-going tensions with the regional autonomy, ethnic differences and resource diversity... The expertise of the authors and their impressive use of empirical methodologies coalesce in this major contribution to our understanding of this increasingly mysterious political system.' New Zealand International Review '... various frameworks of analysis provide historical, statistical, theoretical, and comparative insights by some of the most knowledgeable Western and native Russian scholars... The book as a whole should be appraised as a major contribution in comprehending Russia politically in this second decade of the twenty-first century.' Europe-Asia Studies 'The title of this excellent edited volume does not convey one of its main strengths. Not only does it describe the authoritarianism that has developed in Russia's regions following Vladimir Putin's recentralization, but it compares these developments to what came before, during the Soviet era and the first decade of post-Soviet Russia. Thus, the volume is wide-ranging and informative. It effectively conveys the dynamism of federal relations during the past two decades and provides fodder for thinking about how subnational developments might affect Russian politics in the future... This balanced, impressive volume expands our knowledge not only of recent federal relations in Russia but of Russian politics in general. It is highly recommended for graduate students and scholars seeking a deep understanding of both Russia and federalism in authoritarian states.' Slavic Review
