Reclassifying Russian Law: Mechanisms, Outcomes, and Solutions for an Overly Politicized FieldColumbia Journal of East European Law (2008)
AbstractThis Article will demonstrate how, throughout the 20th century, American scholarship on Russian law has not progressed as a steady accumulation of facts, but instead has been driven by changing American political anxieties and hopes regarding Russia's political place in the world. Although such politicization might have been excusable when Russia lay closed to the West, it is unacceptable today, as there are now unprecedented opportunities to engage in empirical research on Russian law.
