Now revised to incorporate new realities in the post-9/11 world, this widely respected text traces the historical lineage of Russian foreign policy and its development in the context of domestic power struggles and a changing international environment. The authors' approach brings to light both continuities in Russia's behavior in the world, reflecting enduring national interests, and the major sources of changes and variability. This new edition is fully updated to cover the evolution of Russian foreign policy under the Putin presidency, including the issues of ongoing NATO expansion; relations with China; the repercussions of 9/11 in Central Asia; developments in the Chechen conflict and the problem of terrorism in Russia; the nuclear proliferation issue; the Iraq war; and other complications in the U.S.-Russian relationship. Offering unparalleled insights on Russian foreign policy, this is the book of choice for courses at both undergraduate and graduate levels.
