The following contributors also offered a variety of insights and interpretations on democracy in Russia:
This book examines the current state and the prospects for democracy in Russia, posing several challenges to our understanding of democracy. Thirteen contributors expand the debate over these questions, offering a variety of insights, interpretations, and conclusions vital to understanding the conditions of emergence and survival of successful democracies.
What can we learn about democracy from the experience of post-Soviet Russia? What can we learn about the prospects for democracy in Russia from the experience of "really existing democracies?" Must some "pre-requisites," cultural or material, be fulfilled for democracy to become possible? Raising these questions, the authors analyze both the development and current state of democracy in the world and political development of post-communist Russia. The purpose of this joint project is to analyze Russian political practice in the context of modern political knowledge about democracy, its advantages and disadvantages, as well as to enrich the theory of democracy, using specific Russian experience of the last decades.
