Russia and the World: the internal-external nexus, edited by Natasha Kuhrt
This is the review of a collective monograph on Russia's foreign policy and its interconnection with the developments at home. The book is written by a powerful collective of academics who specialise in the field and presents a thorough analysis of the problem. However, the review is moderately critical, as the book, though published in 2013, coveres the material until 2011 only. In the last three years Russia's internal/extrnal networks and its foreign policy changed so dramatically as to make the analysis obsolete. This, however, adds a different value to the book as a reflection of the international thinking about Russian at a particular period of its history.
