Russia's Place in Europe- A Security Debate

A Security Debate


The book addresses the role of the Russian Federation within the post-Cold War European security architecture. It assesses the Russian foreign and security policy discourse as well as foreign and security policy making. Rather than confronting «Western» and «Russian» positions, the book provides a forum of debate among Russians, reflecting the authentic character of the internal security dialogue. Ukrainian and Belarussian perspectives are included for additional insight into the CIS dimension of Russian foreign and security policy.
The book contains contributions by well-known analysts of Russian foreign and security policy such as Yevgeniy Bazhanov, Aleksey Filitov, Andrey Kortunov, Igor Maximychev, Tatyana Parkhalina, Sergey Rogov, Anatoliy Rozanov, Dmitriy Trenin and others. The contributions are introduced and commented by the editors.
