Russia's oil barons and metal magnates : oligarchs and the state in transistion by Stephen Fortescue( Book )

15 editions published between 2006 and 2014 in English and held by 263 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Existing studies of the oligarchs and their relationship with the Russian state tend to be damning on two grounds: they obtained their wealth and power corruptly, and rapaciously stripped the assets over which they had so dubiously gained ownership. While the author would not wish to be seen as a 'revisionist friend of the oligarchs', nevertheless this book is distinctive in that it undertakes a critical analysis of each of the claims made against them. In doing so the book presents a detailed description and analysis of the place of the oligarchs in the contemporary Russian political economy, including a study of the extraordinary Yukos affair"--Jacket
Russian politics from Lenin to Putin by Stephen Fortescue( Book )

17 editions published between 2010 and 2014 in English and held by 261 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Seven leading specialists present chapters devoted to key themes in Soviet and post-Soviet Russian politics. Those themes include: the personal versus the institutional in the political process; legitimacy and legitimation; and change and collapse of a mono-organisational society. While the book focuses on these major themes, individual chapters deal with wide-ranging and even unusual cases: Graeme Gill analyses the legitimating functions of Moscow's architecture, Sheila Fitzpatrick uses the archives to draw a picture of Stalin "the boss" dealing with his closest colleagues, Eugene Huskey provides a detailed description of post-Soviet Russian pantouflage, and Archie Brown and Peter Reddaway present their different takes on Gorbachev and the Soviet collapse. Stephen Fortescue provides an overview of policy-making processes from Lenin and Putin, and Leslie Holmes updates the concept of goal-rational legitimacy."--

Policy-making for Russian industry by Stephen Fortescue( Book )

11 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 191 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is an attempt to choose between four models of the contemporary Russian economy: the familiar state-run and market models and the author's own 'negotiated' and 'bargained' economies. The last two are derived from the 'administered market' model, developed in the late-Soviet period to describe a system in which power has seeped away from the centralized state."--Jacket

Can Russia afford to be a great power? by Stephen Fortescue( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 58 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Russia wants to be recognised as a great power, and has sufficient economic power and potential to encourage it to behave accordingly. However, under its current leadership it recognises that there are economic limits to its behaviour. There is a consistent commitment to budget discipline and a measured allocation of resources among key claimants -- the social and development sectors, as well as defence and security. That limits the allocation of resources to power projection, particularly of the hard variety, even if such allocation is at a level high enough to cause considerable discomfort in the West. The Russian economy is subject to particular pressures: stagnant growth even before the 2014 fall in oil prices, and the budgetary and investment challenges of lower oil prices and sanctions. The commitment to budget discipline and a measured allocation of resources has been maintained. However, there has also been a major rhetorical and policy shift towards a more 'securitised' economy, including import substitution-led industry policy. There are major features of the Russian environment which threaten the success of such a policy shift, but which are highly resistant to policy action. They include much discussed institutional weaknesses, as well as issues of remoteness, climate, market size, and industrial location that make it difficult for Russian industry to be globally competitive. The West has no determining influence over the Russian economy. But it is able to raise the costs of great power behaviour, through reducing access to investment and technology, and should do so
