No Illusions: The Voices of Russia's Future Leaders

Ellen Mickiewicz
Oxford University Press

Mickiewicz, professor emeritus of public policy and political science, looks at the next generation of leaders in Russian politics, business and economics. Mickiewicz, an expert on Russian media, shows how their immersion in the world of the Internet frames the way that they think and affects their trust in their leaders, the media and their colleagues. These emerging leaders hold a rather different worldview from the current leadership, yet it is not a worldview that readily embraces American democracy.
