Как происходит изначальный выбор институтов? Критика концепции «случайности развития» и структурный подход
, Как происходит изначальный выбор институтов? Критика концепции «случайности развития» и структурный подход / Европейский университет в Санкт-Петербурге. Серия Серия препринтов "Центр исследований модернизации". 2017. № M-54/17.
