Reviews of The Russian Mafia

"L’ouvrage de Federico Varese est l’une des toutes premières études systématiques de la mafia en Russie, qui dépasse avec succès le stade du descriptif, voire simplement de l’anecdotique. C’est un livre important quant à l’économie politique des transactions dans un système faiblement institutionnalisé et l’auteur réussit à rendre un texte dense et fortement structure théoriquement aussi lisible qu’un bon roman policier."

Jacques Sapir Cahiers du monde russe

"Varese is a leader of the younger generation of scholars taking on the important issues in the difficult study of organized crime."

Susan Rose-Ackerman, Yale University
