    Lilia Shevtsova provides an interesting look at how Russia changed from the fall of the Soviet Union under the leadership of Boris Yeltsin and Vladamir Putin. Both left their own mark on Russia and were instrumental during their time in shaping the course of Russia. From a look at political elites to the general Russian there is ample evidence at the changing face of Russia. Economics is also strongly considered particularly within the context of the political economy and the greater income disp Lilia Shevtsova provides an interesting look at how Russia changed from the fall of the Soviet Union under the leadership of Boris Yeltsin and Vladamir Putin. Both left their own mark on Russia and were instrumental during their time in shaping the course of Russia. From a look at political elites to the general Russian there is ample evidence at the changing face of Russia. Economics is also strongly considered particularly within the context of the political economy and the greater income disparity that exists in Russia. It is an important point to remember that Shevtsova is writing as a political scientist and not a historian so the process of the way Russia evolved remains the focused as opposed to the actual events which can make for a lot of jumping around. Overall though it is not too hard to follow and her insights are unique on a topic that has not gotten a lot of writing. Very worthwhile for those who want to learn more about where Russia is heading.
