Policing and Coercion after Communism
Cambridge University Press (2011)
by Brian D. Taylor
"In this important study of the power ministries in Russia since the early 1990s, Brian D. Taylor fills in these gaping holes in our understanding of what state capacity actually means in theory and on the ground."
– Valerie Bunce, Cornell University
"This is very timely contribution on Russia and the results of Putin's presidency, and is also a valuable contribution to a broader discussion on democracy and development."
– Nikolay Petrov, Carnegie Moscow Center
Taylor is also the author of: Politics and the Russian Army: Civil-Military Relations, 1689-2000.
