Synopsis

The authors apply theory to the study of the origins and outcomes of post-Soviet Russian policy and behaviour, probing the complex interplay between domestic and international factors as they discuss political and economic issues.

Excerpt

The chapters in this book were originally presented in the 1993-1994 John M. Olin Critical Issues Series at Harvard University's Russian Research Center. in addition, several of the draft chapters were presented as a panel at the 1994 annual meeting of the International Studies Association in Washington, D.C. the seminar series, travel to the isa convention, and the preparation of this manuscript were supported by a generous grant from the John M. Olin Foundation.

Many members and friends of the Russian Research Center contributed to the successful operation of the seminar series and the production of this volume. I want to thank Tim Colton, director of the Russian Research Center, for supporting the study of Russian foreign policy at the center in general and for endorsing my proposal for this series. Good research requires insightful analysis and critique, and a number of scholars provided that assistance to the authors. Joel Hellman, Douglas Blum, Randall Stone, Robert Darst, Josephine Andrews, and Carol Saivetz served as discussants for the seminar series, and Jeffrey Knopf and Jeffrey Checkel were the discussants for the isa panel. Lisbeth Bernstein, associate director, and Christine Porto, head administrative officer, were encouraging and helpful at every turn. I would have been incapable of organizing the series without the administrative assistance and constant good cheer of Michele Albanese, Alan Fortescue, and Judy Mehrmann. and finally, the entire project was rescued by the arrival and skill of Anne Wildermuth, who transformed the diverse writings of eight academics into a readable whole.
