From the conflict in Syria to the crisis in Ukraine, Russia
continues to dominate the headlines. Yet the political realities of
contemporary Russia are poorly understood by Western observers and
policy-makers. In this highly engaging book, Andrew Monaghan
explains why we tend to misunderstand Russia - and the importance
of 'getting Russia right'. Exploring in detail the relationship
between the West and Russia, he charts the development of relations
and investigates the causes of the increasingly obvious sense of
strategic dissonance. He also considers the evolution in Russian
domestic politics, introducing influential current figures and
those who are forming the leadership and opposition of the future.
By delving into the depths of difficult questions such as the
causes of the Ukraine crisis or the political protests surrounding
the 2011-12 elections, the book offers a dynamic model for
understanding this most fascinating and elusive of countries. -- .
