Reviews

“Power, Politics and Confrontation in Eurasia aims to provide an understanding of patterns of confrontation between Russia and the west. … the chapters have been organized well, providing new experiences and ideas. The editors should be congratulated. … chapters will certainly challenge every scholar’s thoughts about Eurasia by providing contrasting views and theories, whilst examining the challenges to all of the countries themselves.” (Carol Weaver, Slavic Review, 2017)

“In Power, Politics and Confrontation in Eurasia, these two eminent scholars have assembled a group of nine additional experts to explain various facets of Russian foreign and security policy in the broader Eurasian space. … Well thought out and supported, this edited volume is a worthwhile contribution to better understanding the complexity of ‘foreign policy in a contested region.’” (Roger D. Kangas, The Russian Review, Vol. 75 (3), July, 2016)

“This volume … provides a scholarly analysis of the evolution of Russia’s foreign and security policies vis-à-vis the post-Soviet space, focusing on the factors shaping politics and security across the region. … This timely volume provides a good analysis of the development of the country’s foreign policy and the evolution of its relations with both the West and its post-Soviet neighbours. … provides a comprehensive overview of Russia’s foreign policy and the growth in tension between Moscow and the West.” (Tracey German, International Affairs, Vol. 92 (3), 2016)



''Cool heads and balanced analysis are a vital necessity in these troubled times. For those looking for a comprehensive discussion of how we have arrived at our current impasse across the Eurasian space there is no better guide than this searching study. A must read for scholar and policy-maker alike.'' Professor Michael Cox, Director, LSE IDEAS, UK

''Sussex and Kanet have assembled a stellar group of experts and produced a first-rate book that combines thorough research, fair mindedness, analytical acumen, and lucidity of exposition. It pays particular attention to the Ukraine crisis but situates it within the larger context of Eurasian security. This is a must-read volume for those seeking a better understanding of the ways in which the rising tensions between Russia and the West could shape Eurasia's future.'' Professor Rajan Menon, The City College of New York, USA
