Project Summary

Looks at the formation of the new political system in Russia, following the August 1991 collapse of the Soviet Union. Reviews the changes prompted by perestroika, and the position of the Communist Party. Looks at what has filled the void in the political and social spheres, and the notion of entrepreneurship as linked to an understanding of self-interest and coordinated efforts.
