RUSSIAN AND CENTRAL

ASIAN POLITICS

JIM BUTTERFIELD

FALL 2017

"At last, Russia has returned to the world arena as a strong state - a country that others heed and that can stand up for itself."

― Vladimir Putin

 

"The Marxist analysis has got nothing to do with what happened in Stalin's Russia: it's like blaming Jesus Christ for the Inquisition in Spain."

― Tony Benn

 

"Russia is a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma."

― Winston Churchill

 

"Even under Stalin, Soviet state power, acting through law and the courts, confronted serious limits in its efforts to govern, much less transform, its colonial Central Asian periphery.”

― Douglas Northrop
