The book offers a theoretical discussion of the feudal model and a preliminary application of the model to post-Soviet Russia. In addition to a review of the feudal model as an ideal type, the author explains the analytical benefits of drawing comparisons between countries and across historical contexts.

The book is devoted to illuminating the most important political, social and economic characteristics of contemporary Russian society.
