Naval War College Review

Article Title

In My View


I am pleased that in his review of my book, The Russian Presidency (Naval War College Review, Summer 2001, pp. 165–8), Sergei Khrushchev agreed with me (and we are among a very few in the scholarly community who have agreed on this issue) that presidentialism will serve Russia better than the parliamentary alternative. But elsewhere, Dr. Khrushchev disagrees with me, and I am writing not only to clarify to readers of the Review the nature of that disagreement but also to take issue with places where I believe he has mischaracterized the book.
