In Law and the Russian State, William E. Pomeranz examines Russia’s legal evolution from Peter the Great to Vladimir Putin, addressing the continuities and disruptions of Russian law during the imperial, Soviet, and post-Soviet periods along the way. It also analyzes legal culture and how Russians understand and use the law.
