Russia against Europe: A clash of interpretations of modernity?

This article argues that combining elements of the sociological theories of Johann Arnason and Peter Wagner can contribute to an understanding of the "new Cold War" on the European continent.

The recent "conservative turn" in Russian politics largely draws on a specific interpretation of European modernity.
