Store this book on an expansion card and you wont have any worries about running out of memory!Crucial to the understanding of breakdown and transition are analyses of changes within the internal relations of national elites. In The Transition from Communism to Capitalism, the authors define and detail the political elites under state socialism, showing how the elites under Gorbachev were profoundly fragmented. They further reveal how, with the maturation of state socialism, new class interests arose which were cultivated by, and in turn influenced, the Gorbachev leadership.The authors put forth the argument that these class interests are strongly represented in todays political settlement in Russia. They consider various interpretations of what has led to Russias current condition, including the idea that executive capital is more important than political capital and has been reproduced in the transition from communism.Lane and Rosss careful and thorough study will be an obligatory source for discussions of the political transition in Russia.CHOICE
