Russia and the World: New State-of-Play on the International Stage by Leo Cooper


pdf epub fb2 djvu



The collapse of communism and the disintegration of the USSR created a new geo-political reality, a new international environment, and a new set of international relations. This book examines the factors that determine Russia's foreign policy, such as the economy and domestic politics. It devotes special attention to the so called "Russian Idea"--a foreign policy determinant largely overlooked by western politicians and analysts. It attempts such analysis by applying Russian rather than Western criteria as Russia is a country with a unique culture and history.
