Reviews

“David Cadier and Margot Light’s edited volume insightfully charts the influence of domestic and external factors on Russia’s foreign policy and its actions in Ukraine. … Russia’s foreign policy is invaluable reading for all those interested in Russian foreign policy and its recent evolution.” (Cristian Nitoiu, International Affairs, Vol. 91 (5), 2015)

'Russian foreign policy has always mattered. And with the crisis in eastern Ukraine, it matters more than ever. This is an unusually timely collection: particularly welcome is the way in which it goes beyond a comprehensive account of recent developments to offer a range of interpretations and perspectives, including those of Russians themselves. It deserves the widest possible readership.' Stephen White, University of Glasgow, UK

'This edited volume is the right book at the right time and by the right people. Linking the internal and external aspects of Russian foreign policy, the book gives a comprehensive and lucid account of the actors and factors behind Russia's emergence as a more assertive actor in Europe.' Hiski Haukkala, University of Tempere, Finland

'A compact and thoughtful compendium that integrates the Russian mindset with the role of domestic politics, and then examines key Russian relationships with the United States, Europe and Eurasia, and the Asia-Pacific. These days understanding who, what, and why Russia is as it is is not easy. This book makes it easier.' Robert Legvold, Columbia University
