Subject of studies published in peer-reviewed collection of the articles by Farid Khusainov — in the opinion of the author reviews — is very complex, dramatic, waged with varying success struggle for the railroad between the forces of economic freedom and modernization, on the one hand and archaic forms of traditionalism and bureaucracy — on the other. Review focuses the reader’s attention on the fact that if a segment of cars were carried out reforms in other segments — continues to fight for something that would reform they are not touched. Thus, the locomotive traction is still in fact is in a monopoly position, which can be regarded as an act of violent and unlawful retention of a monopoly in the captive market players who have long to be released. It is noted that all the materials are written peer-reviewed collection vivid, bright, in a polemical manner, the scientific approach is accompanied by a journalistic direction, and the argument is designed not only for professionals but also for a wide range of readers.
