Summary
"This collection of essays discusses modernization, democratization, and economic and political reforms in Russia and asserts that these reforms can be accomplished through the reframing of cultural values, attitudes, and institutions. The contributors--which include three Nobel Laureates--strive to analyze and understand Russian culture as tensions between Russia and the West heighten to levels not seen since the Cold War"--Provided by publisher
