Russia and the New States of Eurasia: The Politics of Upheaval

Etukansi
Cambridge University Press, 28.1.1994 - 437 sivua
The old order of stable political alignments within and between the Soviet republics and their nationalities disintegrated with the collapse of the Soviet Union. Russia and the fourteen new states on its borders must now deal with a new and unpredictable international environment even as they struggle with political and economic chaos at home. Russia and the New States of Eurasia, first published in 1994, focuses on the central role of Russia in this new world and surveys the possibilities for future alignments both among the new states, and between the new states and their neighbours. It identifies the key issues and relationships which will determine the long-term economic growth and political stability of this vast and vital region, and will prove essential reading for students, scholars and policy-makers concerned with the future of the former Soviet Union.
