This is an analysis of the historical traditions and distinctive features of modern Russian federalism. It reviews the state of affairs in today's Russia as it strives to become a federal democracy securing the rights and liberties of its citizens. By tracing two contrasting ideas -- federalism and derzhavnost (dictatorship of power) -- in the legacy of the Russian state, and in relations between the modern federal government and the regions, it demonstrates the need for balance in the delimitation of power.
