The Sociology of Post-reform Russia

(p.145) Chapter Six The Sociology of Post-reform Russia

This chapter seeks to paint a portrait of contemporary Russian society, as the real social processes and attitudes of post-reform Russia suggest an open-ended state of “permanent transition” for Russia, in which the future of democratic institutions remains uncertain. It uses quantitative sociological research to provide a series of indicators for determining contemporary Russian views on a number of salient questions about the profound social, political, and economic transformations associated with post-reform Russia, thus contributing a more nuanced understanding to the more general qualitative questions of Russian identity, norms, and attitudes. The chapter also offers an annotated list of “Russian realities” that should debunk the myths about the motives of Russian people's behavior.

Keywords:   quantitative sociological research, post-reform Russia, contemporary Russian society, Russian people's behavior, Russian realities
