Democratization and revolution in the USSR, 1985-1991 by Jerry F Hough( Book )

14 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 774 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Democratization and Revolution in the USSR, 1985-1991 presents a strikingly new view of the Gorbachev era and the reasons for the collapse of the Soviet Union. Written by one of America's most distinguished specialists on the former Soviet Union, this is the first comprehensive overview of the Gorbachev period, which it describes as a real revolution; not mere "reform." According to Hough, despite Mikhail Gorbachev's talk of a regulated market, he never understood that a market must be created on a solid institutional and legal base. Hough explains that Gorbachev was not alone in thinking that the destruction of old institutions was enough to unleash a market. Westerners also talked of leaping a chasm in a single jump, as if democratic and market institutions existed precreated on the other side. But precisely because Gorbachev (and later Boris Yeltsin) was encouraged in all his worst mistakes by Western advice, his failure has crucial implications for Western thinking about the process of democratization and marketization. This unprecedented book explores those implications in depth

The logic of economic reform in Russia by Jerry F Hough( Book )

16 editions published between 2001 and 2003 in English and Chinese and held by 587 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For Russia, the 1990s were characterized by social, political, and economic upheaval. Despite declarations that it would become a fully functional market economy virtually overnight, the former superpower languished in the depths of economic depression, its coffers routinely raided by plutocrats who pulled the strings of government. After it became apparent that the rosy predictions of some of the world's most respected economists were faulty, recriminations began among the governments of the Western nations, many of whom had sunk considerable assets into Russia's "transformation." The search was on for the culprit (or culprits) who had "lost" Russia." "Russia's free-market reforms have not been undermined by any single person or feature, contends Jerry Hough in this thought-provoking book. Hough argues that a combination of factors - including Boris Yeltsin's political reach into the institutions of the financial world and mistaken assumptions about the nature of free-market economics - tarnished Russia's capitalist star." "The Logic of Economic Reform in Russia challenges readers to go beyond the conventional wisdom about the transition from command to market economy. Using sound economic theories regarding rational thought and incentives, Hough illuminates the economic woes of a nation whose market system continues to evolve along its idiosyncratic path."--Jacket

8 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 488 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The 1996 Russian presidential election is a crucial referendum on the policy of economic reform that had been conducted over the previous five years. This book, written before the election on the basis of two major public opinion surveys at the time of the 1993 and 1995 Duma elections, explores the evolution in Russian thinking, the positions and strategies of the candidates, and the dilemma of the centrists choosing between a president they profoundly dislike and a Communist party they do not trust
Growing pains : Russian democracy and the election of 1993( Book )

6 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 450 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Growing Pains is a detailed study of the 1993 election and its implications for Russian development and for the country's relations with the West. Several chapters, relying on comprehensive surveys of the Russian electorate, analyze the election process and how social structure and citizen opinions shaped voter choice. Others examine the campaigns of the major parties, the nature and consequences of electoral rules, and the roles of the mass media. Still others examine the campaign and its outcome at the grass roots in ten regions of Russia, from the western provinces to the Pacific coast, demonstrating the significance of local context and local elites and power structures in Russia's transitional politics
Changing party coalitions : the mystery of the red state-blue state alignment by Jerry F Hough( Book )

The long process of development : building markets and states in pre-industrial England, Spain, and their colonies by Jerry F Hough( Book )

16 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 124 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Douglass North once emphasized that development takes centuries, but he did not have a theory of how and why change occurs. This groundbreaking book advances such a theory by examining in detail why England and Spain developed so slowly from 1000 to 1800. A colonial legacy must go back centuries before settlement, and this book points to key events in England and Spain in the 1260s to explain why Mexico lagged behind the United States economically in the twentieth century. Based on the integration of North's institutional approach with Mancur Olson's collective action theory, Max Weber's theory of value change, and North's focus on dominant coalitions based on rent and military in In the Shadow of Violence, this theory of change leads to exciting new historical interpretations, including the crucial role of the merchant-navy alliance in England and the key role of George Washington's control of the military in 1787"

In Stalin's time : middleclass values in Soviet fiction by Vera Sandomirsky Dunham( Book )

8 editions published between 1976 and 1990 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This new edition of In Stalin’s Time, which brings back into print Vera Dunham’s 1976 landmark study of popular fiction in the Soviet Union during the Stalin regime, is updated to include new material by the author and a new introduction by Richard Sheldon. Dunham describes how the middle-brow or postwar establishmentarian literature of the Stalinist period was a product of a “Big Deal” intended to propagate values and establish an alliance between the regime and the middle class. Both descriptive and analytical, Dunham’s complex picture of “high totalitarianism” not only reveals insights into the details of Soviet life but illuminates important theoretical questions about the role of literature in the political structure of Soviet society
