Simon Kordonsky divides the social structure of contemporary Russia into distinct estates or social groups and describes each organization's unique resource-based political and economic nature. As he guides readers through Russia's peculiar service and support estate system, Kordonsky reveals how remarkably effective inventing and institutionalizing threats can be in the distribution of scarce resources in a social system of this kind. His book emphasizes the fundamental differences between resource-based economies and traditional risk-based economies and their role in Russia's future.
