VESTNIK, THE JOURNAL OF RUSSIAN AND ASIAN STUDIES  / VESTNIK - ISSUE 2, SUMMER 2005
21.06.2005



Welcome! Добро пожаловать!

VESTNIK has been created by The School of Russian and Asian Studies in an effort to effectively encourage the study of Russia and those states formerly a part of the Soviet Union.  VESTNIK is a scholarly journal which publishes the best in undergraduate and graduate research on any subject of relevance to that geographic region.

This, our second issue, showcases papers on many social aspects of Russian life.  In "A Remedy for Legal Failure: Trial by Jury in Russia" the history and current state of Russia’s juridical system is considered.  "Privately Enforced Capitalism" takes a look at Russia’s oligarchy, their historical development and where they might be headed.  In "Variations on Community" we are introduced to life in Russian kommunalki, or communal apartments.  We have also left room for political analysis with "US-Russia Relations After September 11th, 2001: A Game Theory Analysis."

In addition, you will also find a book review on Lazar Fleishman’s Boris Pasternak: The Poet and His Politics under the title “Boris Pasternak as an Embodiment of Art’s Nonconformist Nature.”
