Economists and political scientists wrestle with the challenges faced by
Russian officials and public alike in adapting to a market economy and
democracy, including the fragility of property rights and elections still
rooted in old institutional structures. Contributors examine the reforms
of health and welfare, and the hierarchy of privilege and access, and
consider how Putin’s statist approach to mythmaking compares to that of
previous Soviet and post-Soviet regimes. Historians and anthropologists
explore the issue of nostalgia, gender, punishment, belief, and how
history itself is being created and perceived today. The volume concludes
with a journey through the ruined landscape of real socialism.
