About This Book

How can we best understand Russia's relationship with Europe today? Is Russia a European country? What binds us together and divides us? And is there a viable basis for cooperation? Is Russia a friend, a partner, a neighbour or a foe to Europe? This book brings together an impressive group of academic specialists and practitioners to provide a timely and important study of these complex questions. The recognition of mutual dependency, it is argued, needs to be qualified by a range of political, economic and normative tensions which make this a problematic and frequently turbulent relationship. There has never been a more important time to understand Russia's relationship with Europe and it is the subsequent sense of unease both in Russia and Europe which provides the focus for this investigation and which will make it of use to specialist and general readers alike.

Reviews

'Recommended.' —‘Choice’

'[Recent] crises have illustrated the urgent need to improve our understanding of the processes leading to conflicts involving former Soviet republics and the role played by Western states and institutions in post-Soviet space, and to communicate this understanding to policy-makers, the media and the general public. [This book contributes] to meeting this need, and [...] should be bought by libraries which support Russian or European Studies.' —Peter J. S. Duncan, ‘Slavonic and East European Review’, University College London

'Examining the interpenetration of linguistics, psychology, sociology and political thought, this collection makes an excellent interdisciplinary contribution to our knowledge of Soviet cultural and intellectual history.' —Galin Tihanov, University of Manchester

'Drawing on political and historical concepts, this superb collection offers an array of rich variations on one of the central issues of current European international politics.' —Evgeny Dobrenko, University of Sheffield
