Russian Society and the Orthodox Church examines the Russian Orthodox Church's social and political role and its relationship to civil society in post-Communist Russia. It shows how Orthodox prelates, clergy and laity have shaped Russians' attitudes towards religious and ideological pluralism, which in turn have influenced the ways in which Russians understand civil society, including those of its features - pluralism and freedom of conscience - that are essential for a functioning democracy.

Based on original research, this book explores East German political culture and its role in the revolution of 1989 and in reunification. Specifically the book shows how a set of common values stabilised the communist regime until the 1980s, how the undermining of these values motivated revolutionary mobilization, and how the partial survival of this specific culture and its conflict with West German culture have contributed to the post-unification political crisis.

Roy Medvedev, Post-Soviet Russia - A Journey through the Yeltsin Era
ISBN: 0231106068 | edition 2000 | PDF | 397 pages | 12 mb

Russia's best-known contemporary historian comes to grips with his country in the aftermath of Communism, and he doesn't like what's been happening. Medvedev makes no bones about the fact that he thinks the path Yeltsin and the "democratic reformers" have followed these past eight years has been a disaster.

Publisher: United Nations University Press | ISBN: 9280808818 | edition 1995 | PDF | 384 pages | 1,02 mb
