Islam and Western Europe: tendencies and their interpretation. Muslims in Europe: are there limits to integration? – Ed. by T.S.Kondratieva and I.S.Novozhenova. M.: INION RAN. 2008, in preparation for publishing.
Analyzing the manuscript of the book on Islamic ethnic minorities in Europe prepared by INION RAN, the author draws a specific attention to the new tendencies in their attitude to the European community, its norms and values. Among those primarily is the inclination of a considerable part of the second- and third-wave immigrants from Muslim states to isolate rather than adapt. Apart from that, it has become evident that external political problems are being transmitted to the new home countries to which they are not directly linked. The review analyzes as well one of the recent years’ obvious tendencies – the splash of Islamic radicalism and its cause.

Municipal revolution of 1990-s: between intentions and results. (V.Y.Gelman, S.I.Ryzhenkov, E.V.Belokurova, N.V.Borisova. Autonomy or control? Reform of local authority in Russian cities, 1991-2001. S.-Pt.: Letniy Sad, 2002. – 383p.)
The review notes that the book prepared by the European University in Saint-Petersburg clearly stands out in a growing flow of publications on local self-government. It is an attempt to give serious answers to the reasons of very modest results of a ten-year reform period in this sphere. The work very well combines the analysis both on the federal and the regional levels. It is not without reason that 4 out of 7 chapters present a sort of case-studies of attempts to establish local authority in very different regions (Saratov, Perm, Petrozavodsk, Pskov).
