The Post-Soviet Potemkin Village

I am reading a book "The Post-Soviet Potemkin Village: Politics and Property Rights in the Black Earth" that is about land reform politics in Russia and Ukraine. It is written by Jessica Allina-Pisano, an Associate Professor in the School of Political Studies at the University of Ottawa. Professor Allina-Pisano conducted more than 300 interviews in Ukraine and Russia between 1997 and 2006. So far I just read two chapters that showed her profound knowledge of the politics in Ukraine and Russia. Her research is very interesting and I look forward to reading her book.
