About this book

This book explores Russia’s efforts towards both adapting to and shaping a world in transformation. Russia has been largely marginalized in the post-Cold War era and has struggled to find its place in the world, which means that the chaotic changes in the world present Russia with both threats and opportunities. The rapid shift in the international distribution of power and emergence of a multipolar world disrupts the existing order, although it also enables Russia to diversify it partnerships and restore balance. Adapting to these changes involves restructuring its economy and evolving the foreign policy. The crises in liberalism, environmental degradation, and challenge to state sovereignty undermine political and economic stability while also widening Russia’s room for diplomatic maneuvering. This book analyzes how Russia interprets these developments and its ability to implement the appropriate responses.

Reviews

“Global power shifts are taking place against the background of profound changes in economic and environmental concerns. This wide-ranging volume presents a range of views from Russia, provided by some of the leading scholars from the region. The book provides a unique insight into Russian thinking, revealing its diversity as well as the over-riding common perspectives.” (Richard Sakwa, University of Kent and Higher School of Economics, UK)

“At times of international instability grasping positions of major powers is especially important. Russia and the Changing World is an excellent summary of the country’s global priorities by leading experts of a top university.” (Andrei P. Tsygankov, San Francisco State University, USA)

“This stimulating collection of essays by leading Russian scholars of international relations raises many of the central issues confronting the international order. Not everyone will agree with many of the positions advanced here, but they must be engaged with if we are to really understand what is going on in the international arena. This volume will further that understanding, and should therefore be read by anyone hoping to participate in the debates surrounding the future.” (Greame Gill, University of Sydney, Australia)

“A diverse and comprehensive set of ideas on Russia’s relations with its international environment today and tomorrow, including views from some of the most influential and perceptive Russian opinion-makers. The book is a valuable contribution to current debates on where the country is moving to." (Andrey Kortunov, Director General of the Russian International Affairs Council)
