Russia: A Return To Imperialism?
Uri Ra'anan and Kate Martin, eds.
After the collapse of the USSR, it was widely accepted that Russia no longer constituted a serious threat to international stability and Western interests. Russia: A Return to Imperialism? presents the first major challenge to that assumption. Uri Ra'anan and Kate Martin have assembled a group of experts to look closely at Russia's present and future role in world politics. The authors cover a wide range of issues, including Russia's relations with Ukraine and Belarus'; East European Security and Russia's relationship with NATO; and President Bill Clinton's foreign policy with Russia. The book portrays Russia as a country showing increasing imperialist tendencies; and the West as ignoring those tendencies. The contributors express alarm over the apparant lack of Western attention and urge further scrutiny of Russia's policies. Informative and fascinating, Russia: A Return to Imperialism? is essential reading for anyone interested in foreign affairs and the political balance of our world.Order it!
