Like Fainsod before him, Professor Hough seeks not merely to describe the formal apparatus of power, but to portray the way things actually work—the informal channels through which groups and social forces have impact on Soviet politics at all levels. This is a lively and authoritative work that will be essential for anyone trying to understand the Soviet Union today.—S. Frederick Starr

Miller, author of On Not Being Someone Else: Tales of Our Unled Lives. As we live through a worldwide pandemic, the ideas of what might have been are even more appealing. Much like the adolescents on the verge of adulthood in Sally Rooney’s novel Normal People, Miller tells us, we wait to see what comes next.
