The Social Structure of Russia

P. 75-85.
Translator: I. Studin.
Editor of translation: I. Studin.

By social structure, I mean the structure of Russia’s various social groups and the relations among them. Historically, the social structure of Russia has been described in terms of concepts and constructs provided by the state itself—through the national system of laws determining socially significant groups and, to a limited degree, the relations among these social groups. These groups typically included civil servants, military personnel, law enforcement, judges, political representatives, municipal officials and bureaucrats, and Cossacks—all of whom served the state.

Simon Kordonsky divides the social structure of contemporary Russia into distinct estates or social groups and describes each organization's unique resource-based political and economic nature. As he guides readers through Russia's peculiar service and support estate system, Kordonsky reveals how remarkably effective inventing and institutionalizing threats can be in the distribution of scarce resources in a social system of this kind. His book emphasizes the fundamental differences between resource-based economies and traditional risk-based economies and their role in Russia's future.
