Chapter Summary

This front matter section of this book titled Law in Eastern Europe contains acknowledgments, preface, Introduction: the promise of the Russian Constitution and Chief Justices of the Constitutional Court of the Russian Federation: 1990 to the Present. The book is divided into two sections, the first section focuses on the macro-level political-constitutional dimensions of the Russian political system. The second section of the book focuses specifically on the functioning of the judiciary and law enforcement agencies in light of the Constitution's stated goal of ensuring the development of a rule-of-law state in Russia. The Procuracy has long held a preeminent place in the Russian and Soviet legal systems, representing the State's abiding interests and protecting state power. As such, the Procuracy has vigorously resisted reforms that threatened to scale back its powers.
