Product Description

Review

This fascinating book is a must for those interested in transitional societies, the shift from state communism to varieties of capitalism in the former Soviet Union and in Russia, the discourse on "organized crime' and the symbiotic role of such crime in relation to the state and economic enterprises. Rawlinson's intriguing and even chilling analysis is presented in a highly readable and lively style making this an impressive piece of work that is accessible to a wide audience. (Dr Maurice Punch, Visiting Professor, London School of Economics and King`s College London)

This book challenges the orthodox understandings of Russian organised crime and tears away the political agendas that misrepresent Russia's experience of capitalism and socialism. Rawlinson exposes the real dangers that threaten the values both of Russia and the West. The sovietization of the West goes on at increasing speed, making a mockery of Fukuyama's image of an end of History. (Boris Kashnikov, Professor at the Moscow Higher School of Economics)

Format: Paperback
This is only a book for academics and not an interesting or gripping read, very heavy going and light on facts, characters involved or actual events. Instead it's a boring slog on the reasons why crime happens and isn't even that Russia related. Having read every book out there on Russian speaking organised crime this is well worth a miss and I'd certainly be gutted if I'd paid full price. Surprised this found a publisher really.
