Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Edited by Aslund (Peterson Institute for International Economics, US), Guriev (New Economic School, Russia), and Kuchins (Center for Strategic and International Studies, US), this volume is the second to come out of the Russia Balance Sheet project, which aims to provide Washington policymakers with a clear understanding of Russia's current economic and foreign policy orientations and dilemmas. Unlike the first volume, which was eponymously named The Russia Balance Sheet and consisted of a unitary treatment, this work consists of 13 essays written by American and Russian experts with the intention of providing further insight, particularly in light of Russia's recent experience with the global economic crisis. Papers address challenges facing the Russian economy, overall Russian politics, federalism, corruption and the rule of law, the role of high-technology industries, climate change and the role of energy efficiency, Gazprom, military reform, overall foreign policy, foreign economic policy, post-Soviet issues, and US-Russia relations and mismatched strategic outlooks.

Synopsis:

The second book from The Russia Balance Sheet Project, a collaboration of two of the world's preeminent research institutions examines Russia after the financial crisis of 2007-2009. In the aftermath of the crisis, what is Russia's current economic status and role in the world order? Furthermore, how have recent allegations of corruption within the political system affected domestic politics as well as the world's perception of Russia? To answer these questions, this book not only assesses Russia's international and domestic policy challenges, but also provides an all-encompassing review of this important country's foreign and domestic issues. The authors consider foreign policy, Russia and it neighbors, climate change, Russia's role in the world, domestic politics, and corruption. As Russia grapples with the realities of the post-crisis world, this lucid volume looks at one of the key countries in the world today and offers the keen insights of some of today's foremost experts.
