The Russian State Strikes Back: The Relevance of the State to Civil Society in Russia

Journal of International Affairs. 2014. Vol. 68. No. 1. P. 297-300.
Soboleva I. V.

Samuel A. Greene, one of the leading British experts on Russia and post-Soviet space, presents a thoughtful and comprehensive study of the evolution of Russian civil society in Moscow in Movement: Power and Opposition in Putin’s Russia. Greene’s  book  presents  a  noteworthy  reflection  on  Russia’s  political  regime, elite strategies, and social movement organization. It balances theoretical speculations on the nature of the Russian political regime with a new, refreshing perspective on the acute problems of state-society relations, explored through several case studies.
