About this book

Pushing postcolonial studies and constructivist International Relations towards an uneasy dialogue, this book looks at Russia as a subaltern empire. It demonstrates how the dialectic of the subaltern and the imperial has produced a radically anti-Western regime, which nevertheless remains locked in a Eurocentric outlook.

Reviews

“Morozov’s book is a rich and insightful study of Russia’s peculiar relations with the West. It goes to the heart of Russia’s inferiority complex vis-à-vis the West by putting it in a global context. It is essential reading for anyone interested in Russian identity, foreign policy and politics.” (Alexander Titov, Slavonic and East European Review, Vol. 96 (2), April, 2018)

“The book by Viacheslav Morozov is an interesting attempt to bridge international relations with postcolonial theory in Russian studies. … The book is an informative and densely written theoretical work which undoubtedly makes a contribution to the field. Its bold engagement with postcolonial theory and acquaintance with various strands of literature make it a fascinating read. … the book presents a new perspective on Russian–European relations, which makes it a mind-bending intellectual journey.” (Vsevolod Samokhvalov, Ab Imperio, Issue 1, 2016)
