Bandits, Gangsters and the Mafia Summary


Bandits, Gangsters and the Mafia: Russia, the Baltic States and the CIS since 1991 by Martin McCauley

During the 1990s, the "roving bandits", big business or the oligarchs, stole Russia. They gained influence over President Yeltsin and his government, and gradually shaped policy in their own interests. In this first comprehensive account to explain why Russia took the course it did, Martin McCauley examines the period through the prism of government, including Yeltsin's shadow government, and looks at the military, police, security and intelligence services. Relations between Moscow and the regions, industry, agriculture, social policy and foreign policy are also explored.

Bandits, Gangsters and the Mafia Reviews


`Martin McCauley is one of the few authorities writing in English who understands the shocking scale and range of the cancer of post-Soviet crime. His book is both important and frightening.'
