DetailsWestern social scientists can improve their understanding of post-Soviet Russia by studying the new discipline of Russian International Relations (IR). This collection introduces recent developments in Russian international studies. It identifies key trends in Russian IR knowledge that are reflective of the transitional nature of Russia’s post-Soviet change. The volume also demonstrates that Russia remains open to different theoretical and ideological traditions. It invites scholars to move away from excessively West-centered IR scholarship by exploring indigenous Russian perceptions and inviting dialogue across the globe.
