    Russische Wahlen 2012 - der Countdown läuft. Die alles entscheidende Frage: Wer bleibt im Kreml? Wird Medwedew zum aufsteigenden Stern am Moskauer Polithimmel? Oder stößt Putin seine Marionette vom Thron? Den nächsten Präsidenten wählt nicht das russische Volk, sondern ein kleiner Kreis im Kreml.

  • Cold War East Angliaby Jim Wilson OBE

    The History Press 2014; US$ 18.94

    This is the story of how the Cold War impacted on the people of East Anglia. Had nuclear conflict broken out, the region would have found itself as the target for any Soviet strike for the simple reason that it housed the launch pad for not only the British deterrent, but also America's first line of defence. The book also examines the early development... more...

  • Krieg der Täterby Claudia Weber

    Hamburger Edition HIS 2015; US$ 26.71

    Im Frühjahr 1943 wurde in der Nähe des russischen Dorfes Katyn ein grauenvoller Fund gemacht: Massengräber mit Tausenden Toten. Die Täterschaft ist zu diesem Zeitpunkt längst bekannt, wie die Autorin eindrücklich zeigt, und dennoch drehte sich die Geschichte der Massenerschiessungen von Katyn Jahrzehnte um die Frage, ob nun das »Dritte Reich« oder... more...

  • Portrait of a Russian Provinceby Catherine Evtuhov

    University of Pittsburgh Press 2011; US$ 34.95

    Several stark premises have long prevailed in our approach to Russian history. It was commonly assumed that Russia had always labored under a highly centralized and autocratic imperial state. The responsibility for this lamentable state of affairs was ultimately assigned to the profoundly agrarian character of Russian society.  The countryside,... more...

  • Vladimir Putin and Russian Statecraftby Allen Lynch

    Potomac Books 2011; US$ 24.95

    Since Russian leader Vladimir Putin assumed power in August 1999, speculation about his character, motives, and plans for Russia?s future has been rampant in the West. A portrait of Putin has emerged in the West that is one-dimensional, ill informed, and diametrically opposed to the image of Putin the majority of Russians hold. Even after he stepped... more...

  • Identities and Politics During the Putin Presidencyby Philipp Casula; Jeronim Perovic; Ivo Mijnssen; Heiko Haumann

    Columbia University Press 2009; US$ 36.99

    How could an undemocratic regime manage to stabilise Russia? What is Putin's success formula? What are the symbolic and discursive underpinnings of Russia's new stability? Many outside observers of Russia regarded the authoritarian tendencies during the Putin presidency as a retreat from, or even the end of, democratization. Rather than attempting... more...

    Palgrave Macmillan 2002; US$ 175.00

    In the first comprehensive treatment of its kind, Bobo Lo examines the course of Russian foreign policy in the decade following the Soviet collapse. Adopting a conceptual approach, he identifies the principal ideological and institutional factors that have influenced the thinking of decisionmaking behind the policies.

  • The Chechen Warsby Matthew Evangelista

    Brookings Institution Press 2003; US$ 22.95

    Russian presidents Yeltsin and Putin justified their invasions of Chechnya as necessary to prevent a breakup of the Russian Federation.

  • Slavophiles and Commissarsby Judith Devlin

    Palgrave Macmillan 1999; US$ 138.00

    This book examines contemporary Russian nationalism as it reemerged in the wake of Gorbachev's liberalisation. The book argues that the new nationalism provided opponents of reform with an apparently novel justification for their hostility to the liberalisation inaugurated by Gorbachev and erratically pursued by Yeltsin. more...
