Can Russia Modernise? Sistema, Power Networks and Informal Governanceby Alena V. Ledeneva (Cambridge University Press, March 2013).

In this original, bottom-up account of the evolution of contemporary Russia, Alena Ledeneva seeks to reveal how informal power operates. Concentrating on Vladimir Putin’s system of governance – referred to as sistema – she identifies four key types of networks: his inner circle, useful friends, core contacts and more diffuse ties and connections.
