The Wild East: Crime and Lawlessness in Post-Communist Russia

Synopsis

A provocative analysis of the problem of all-pervasive corruption and surging violent crime in last Soviet and post-Soviet Russia. Victor Sergeyev asks how it is possible to label and control certain behaviors as deviant in a context where the legal and moral-ethical norms of a collapsed regime have been discredited but not replaced -- particularly when the elite of that failed regime, in league with a patently criminal element, is thriving in the new chaos.
