Missing in Translation

Re-conceptualizing Russia’s Developmental State

(p.9) Chapter One Missing in Translation

Piotr Dutkiewicz

NYU Press

This chapter presents a broad overview of the evolution of the Russian economy and politics since the end of the Soviet era. It makes a point of present-day Russian realities having been “lost in translation,” focusing on the experience of the state as the modernizer-in-chief and its chances of continuing to act in that role in the twenty-first century. The chapter presents the book's main theme in a nutshell by eliminating the black-and-white view of Russia in favor of a richer, multicolored vision. This chapter is also a theoretical vignette within the open-ended story of the possible developmental direction of one of the world's most important subsystems.

Keywords:   Russian economy, Russian politics, Soviet era, present-day Russian realities, modernization
