In particular, do high courts have the power to persuade in countries like Russia that are " between dictatorship and democracy " (McFaul, Petrov, and Ryabov 2004)?

In particular, do high courts have the power to persuade in countries like Russia that are " between dictatorship and democracy " (McFaul, Petrov, and Ryabov 2004)? Scholars have recently addressed this question in the context of South Africa (Gibson and Gouws 2003), but to date, very little has been written on this topic in the context of Russia or other postcommunist judicial systems.

Consequently, nearly half the book is devoted to repetitive history covered by earlier, well-accepted works, some produced by these very authors (. McFaul's Russia's Unfinished Revolution: Political Change from Gorbachev to Putin, CH, Mar'02, and his Russia's 1996 Presidential Election, CH, Feb'98). Considering that the book's stated aim is to document negative trends begun in the mid-1990s and accelerated under Putin, one doubts the necessity of focusing so much on the preceding period.

Michael McFaul, Nikolai Petrov and Andrei Ryabov. They are difficult to answer because Russia’s political system is neither a full-blown dictatorship nor a consolidated democracy, but something in between. They are controversial because the answers have implications for both theorists and policymakers in Russia as well as in the United States. Our method is not to present tedious, long semantic debates about the adjectives that should modify either democracy or dictatorship when describing the Russian regime.

Between Dictatorship and Democracy seeks to give a comprehensive answer to these fundamental .

Between Dictatorship and Democracy seeks to give a comprehensive answer to these fundamental questions about the nature of Russian politics. Michael McFaul is a senior associate at the Carnegie Endowment, the Peter and Helen Bing senior fellow at the Hoover Institution, and an associate professor of political science at Stanford University. A prolific author, he is one of the world's leading specialists on democracy development in the former Soviet states.

There are simply no better scholars of Russian democracy writing today than Michael McFaul, Nikolai Petrov, and Andrei Ryabov. Did the poet say you can't understand Russia by reason alone? Their cool and rigorous analyses will convince you otherwise. oceedings{McFaul2004BetweenDA, title {Between Dictatorship and Democracy: Russian Post-Communist Political Reform}, author {Michael McFaul and Nikolay Petrov and Andrei Ryabov}, year {2004} }.

For hundreds of years, dictators have ruled Russia. Do they still? In the late 1980s, Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev launched a series of political reforms that eventually allowed for competitive elections, the emergence of an independent press, the formation of political parties, and the sprouting of civil society. After the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991, these proto-democratic institutions endured in an independent Russia. But did the processes unleashed by Gorbachev and continued under Russian President Boris Yeltsin lead eventually to liberal democracy in Russia? If not, what kind of political regime did take hold in post-Soviet Russia? And how has Vladimir Putin's rise to power influenced the course of democratic consolidation or the lack thereof? Between Dictatorship and Democracy seeks to give a comprehensive answer to these fundamental questions about the nature of Russian politics.
