NEW SERIES: INSIDE GLOBAL POLITICS
Is there more to
Russian politics than Putin?
Inside Russian Politics is
an intelligent, critical, and engaging account of the realities of contemporary
Russian politics. It is distinctive in widening our view of Russia beyond
the standard account of global power plays and resurgent authoritarian menace.
Putin matters, but he is not Russia. Russian military adventurism has had a
major effect on contemporary international affairs, but assessing its aims and
projecting future intentions and impacts requires analysis within a context
deeper than the stock `Cold War renewed' story.
The holistic approach of
this book facilitates our understanding of power politics in and beyond the
Kremlin and of Russian policy on the international stage. Revealing the Russia
beyond Moscow and the central figures around Putin, Edwin Bacon focuses on
Russia's political present, not to ignore the past but to move beyond cliche
and misleading historical analogy to reveal the contemporary - and future - concerns of Russia's current generation of politicians.
