Year of Graduation: 2016

Bureaucracy is a complex socio-political phenomenon that occurs and evolves subject to the changes in the interaction between the society and the state. The study aims to examine the main features of bureaucracy models, such as Weber's Rational Model, Marx Model, Imperial Asian Model and New Public Management Model, in different times of Russian history and also in modern times. The analysis was conducted under criteria developed by the author. In course of the analysis, the key stages of bureaucracy development in our country were identified, systemized and compared as to compliance with the given models. Russian bureaucracy combined different models at different times throughout its development, with a clear dominance of the imperial model. Modern bureaucracy is a hybrid simultaneously aggregating multiple models. That is primarily due to the ongoing political process and administrative reform.
