What People are Saying

"Fragmented Space is one of the first books to view Russia's complicated transition from Communism through a multidisciplinary perspective. It presents a large amount of new material as well as interesting new approaches for understanding political, economic, and social development in Russia. With contributions from Russian and western scholars, it provides access to the best insights from people living inside Russia and outside observers."—Robert Orttung, Editor-in-Chief of the "Russian Regional Report," EastWest Institute
