Elections Without Order
Neil Munro Richard Rose
Price: $ 22

Russians want free elections and order. Although their political elites have had no difficulty in supplying candidates and parties in the last decade, predictability in everyday life and the rule of law have suffered. This book is about Russia's attempt to achieve democratization backwards, by holding elections without having created a modern state. This dilemma is the challenge that Russia presents to Vladimir Putin.

"Rose and Munro have written an important, original, and exceptionally lucid book. Elections Without Order deepens our understanding of the nature and dynamics of political change in Russia during the past decade. The study is conceptually innovative and especially valuable for its analyses of recent trends in Russian public opinion." -Professor George Breslauer, University of California, Berkeley

"Richard Rose, who has a justly high reputation as a comparativist, and Neil Munro, a knowledgeable Russianist, have together produced a very valuable book. Elections without Order rests on the solid foundation of the cumulatively important survey data gathered by Rose on the post Communist states (from 1992 to the present) and from the authors' skill in interpreting these findings. Rose and Munro pay attention to the state as well as society. In their top-down as well as bottom-up analyses, they perceptively identify and vividly illuminate some of the major obstacles in the path of democratization in Russia." -Professor Archie Brown, Oxford University
