Russia and Globalization Summary


Russia and Globalization: Identity, Security, and Society in an Era of Change by Edited by Douglas W. Blum

Russia is a battered giant, struggling to rebuild its power and identity in an era of globalization. Several of the essays in this diverse and original collection point to the difficulty of guaranteeing a stable domestic order due to demographic shifts, economic changes, and institutional weaknesses. Other contributors focus on the country's efforts to respond to the challenges posed by globalization, and discuss the various ways in which Russia is reconceptualizing its role as an international actor. Ambivalence is a recurrent theme, according to editor Douglas W. Blum-ambivalence about globalization's costs and benefits and the efforts required to manage them.

Russia and Globalization Reviews


Recommended. Comprehensive graduate and research collections. Choice 2008 An impressive array of intellectual talent. -- Jeffrey Mankoff Demokratizatsiya 2009 There is much to recommend this book and Blum should be congratulated on his editorial and organisational efforts. -- Neil Robinson Political Studies Review 2009 One of the first efforts to understand Russia's engagement with globalization, and it is a welcome effort... an important and a pioneering effort. -- Andrei P. Tsygankov International Studies Review 2009 This rich collection of articles explores the multifaceted relationship between globalization, security, and identity. Analysts of both Russian foreign and domestic politics should find it a fruitful read. It is also a unique contribution to the literature on globalization. -- Daniel R. kempton Slavic Review 2009 This will prove to be a very useful and timely collection which could be used selectively in courses on globalisation and the domestic and international politics of Russia. -- David Lane Europe-Asia Studies 2009 Unquestionably a valuable scholarly contribution, and gives clear indication of the awesome task confronting Russia in the age of globalization. -- Seth Unmack Australian Slavonic and East European Studies 2010
