Интересная должна быть книга

Book Description

This book examines a key question of modern Collapse ) politics: why the Collapse ) oligarchs were unable to design institutions capable of protecting their power. The authors question why the oligarchs chose the political institutions they did, and what the consequences of those choices were for Collapse ) political competition, economic development, and diplomatic relations. Indeed, they argue, it was the oligarchs' very inability to agree among themselves on how to rule that prompted them to cut the military loose from civilian control -- a decision that was to have disastrous consequences not only for Collapse ) but for the rest of the world.
