How Russia Votes

Synopsis

In this ground-breaking study, Stephen White, Richard Rose, and Ian McAllister analyze the momentous sequence of elections held during the collapse of the Soviet Union and the creation of the Russian Federation. Declaring Russia a :quot;late entrant to the world of free elections:quot; that still lags behind its postcommunist neighbors, the authors trace the progress of democratization by examining data from the nationwide New Russia Barometer surveys.
