Russian Civil-Military Relations - Putin's Legacy (Paperback): Thomas Gomart Russian Civil-Military Relations - Putin's Legacy (Paperback)
Thomas Gomart
R421 Discovery Miles 4 210 Shipped within 20 - 25 working days

This perceptive and well-informed study highlights the continuity of the Russian (civilian and military) security community's distrust of the outside world, fueled by NATO enlargement. Communism may be dead in Russia, but the obsession with 'threats' continues, rallying the population and keeping security elites in power. This makes Russia an uncomfortable world player to live with. A must read. -Beatrice Heuser, professor and chair of International Relations, School of Politics and International Relations, University of Reading (UK) As Russia reasserts itself on the international stage, the relationship between its civilian and military spheres remains one of the determining factors in the organization of political power. Thomas Gomart's Russian Civil-Military Relations: Putin's Legacy looks beyond traditional dualism between the Kremlin and the military, introducing the role of the security services in Russian power distribution. With the support of the siloviki (security service) and justification through the fight against "international terrorism," Putin worked throughout his administration to reestablish presidential control over the military. As Russia transitions to Dmitry Medvedev's presidency, it is important to not only review the Putin presidency, which has given many of the country's institutions their shape, but also to reach back further into post-communist and Soviet history for an understanding of the realities of today. Russian Civil-Military Relations provides crucial analysis of the nature and evolution of the balance between civilian and military institutions. These relations will continue to influence regime development, security policy, and societal attitudes that build from Putin's Russia to Medvedev's administration and into the future.ration and into the future.

This book provides an original and thoroughly academic analysis of the link between Russian energy and foreign policies in Eurasia, as well as offering an interpretation of Russia's coherence on the international stage, seeking to understand Russia and explain its behaviour. The authors analyse both energy and foreign policies together, in order to better grasp their correlation and gain deeper understanding of broader geopolitical issues in Eurasia at a time when things could go either way--towards producers or towards consumers. Questioning the concept of energy deterrence' which aims to fuel uncertainty in Russia's relations with its partners, as well as projecting its overall power on the international scene, this provocative volume seeks to stimulate debate on this very important issue. Assessing the weight that energy has in Russia's foreign policy and in its pursuit of power on the international stage, this book will be of interest to students and scholars of international relations, energy politics, geopolitics and Russian and Central Asian Studies.
