About the Authors
  • The old order of stable political alignments within and between the Soviet republics and their nationalities disintegrated with the collapse of the Soviet Union. Russia and the fourteen new states on its borders must now deal with a new and unpredictable international environment even as they struggle with political and economic chaos at home. Russia and the New States of Eurasia, first published in 1994, focuses on the central role of Russia in this new world and surveys the possibilities for future alignments both among the new states, and between the new states and their neighbours. It identifies the key issues and relationships which will determine the long-term economic growth and political stability of this vast and vital region, and will prove essential reading for students, scholars and policy-makers concerned with the future of the former Soviet Union.

    • Major study of the independent states of the former Soviet Union, looking at their internal political stability and foreign policy
    • Dawisha and Parrott are both major names, and Dawisha is author of the very successful Eastern Europe, Gorbachev and Reform (1988: 15,500 sales)
    • Will appeal to students and scholars of the former Soviet Union, and should be used as a text and reference

    Reviews & endorsements

    ' … an extremely good attempt to distil all the post-Soviet successor states into a single textbook … Without any doubt the best of the current books dealing with the whole span of the former Soviet Union, this is a lucid and compact survey which will retain its value for many more years to come.' Jane's Intelligence Review
