Editorial Reviews


“Sheds light on an important and hitherto largely overlooked phenomenon: the crackdown on corruption in Moscow’s trade bureaucracy and how that might have fed directly into the political developments that led to the collapse of the USSR.”
—Peter Rutland, Wesleyan University

“An important and compelling case that the Soviet system, while principally different from those of Western societies, created its own formal and informal structure of incentives for rational decision making.”
—Andrei Tsygankov, San Francisco State University

“Riveting. At multiple levels, this work provides new information and perspectives on a period of stalemate, factional competition, and the initiation of fundamental political and economic change.”
—H-Net Reviews

“A thorough analysis . . . a rich feast of new material.”
—Slavic Review
