Written by an international group of specialists, Russian Bureaucracy and the State provides an empirically rich and conceptually innovative assessment of Russian bureaucracy from 1881 to the present. The contributors assess the perennial tensions in Russian state administration - tensions between centre and periphery, formal rules and informal practices, professional and legal versus political loyalties, and a reliance on public versus private purveyors of services. The book is designed to appeal to specialists in Russian and postcommunist studies as well as to students of the state and comparative bureaucracies who are seeking authoritative analyses of how the organization, personnel, and practices of Russian officialdom relate to bureaucratic norms and behaviour elsewhere.
