After the Soviet Union : from empire to nations( Book )

1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 755 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The failed coup by Communist hardliners in Moscow in August 1991 marked the inevitable disintegration of the Soviet Union. No single event since the end of World War II will have more far-reaching effects. The power struggles now underway in the fifteen successor republics raise the specter of chaos in Eastern Europe and Southern Asia. Can these new nations manage their deepening economic crisis? What political form will the new republics take, and can the changes be accomplished peacefully? What dangers and problems does the Soviet Union's passage present to the outside world?" "This collection of original essays, sponsored by the Harriman Institute at Columbia University and the American Assembly, is the first comprehensive assessment of the challenges facing the Soviet Union's successor republics. In five concise chapters, leading American scholars of Soviet affairs examine the economics, politics, and foreign policy of the new nations. The future role of the Soviet military machine - really another nation among the nations - is also discussed. The authors' conclusions lend ground for a tempered optimism about the future of the former USSR

Iuzovka and revolution by Theodore H Friedgut( Book )

1 edition published in 1994 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1870 the Welsh ironmaster John James Hughes left his successful career in England and settled in the barren and underpopulated Donbass region of the Ukrainian steppe to found the town of Iuzovka and build a large steel plant and coal mine. Theodore Friedgut tells the remarkable story of the subsequent economic and social development of the Donbass, an area that grew to supply seventy percent of the Russian Empire's coal and iron by World War I. The first volume of this two-volume study focused on the social and economic development of the Donbass, while the second volume is devoted to political analysis. While revealing the grand and tragic sweep of revolutionary events in this region, Friedgut also offers a fascinating picture of the heterogeneous population of these frontier settlements. He analyzes the instability of the revolutionary movement, and in particular the absence of a significant stratum of "worker-intelligentsia," and the inhibiting effect that this had on the development of an indigenous workers' movement. In addition, he reinforces the theory that World War I intensified existing social tensions in the Russian Empire, cutting short the slow but steady modernization of Russia's society and politics and creating the social crisis that led to the collapse of the old regime.Originally published in 1994.The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press.

Russian foreign policy in the twenty-first century and the shadow of the past( Book )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this book, a mix of leading historians and political scientists examines the foreign policy of contemporary Russia over four centuries of history. The authors explore the impact of empire and its loss, the interweaving of domestic and foreign impulses, long-standing approaches to national security, and the effect of globalization over time." "This volume utilizes history to shed light on Russia's complex, occasionally inscrutable relationship with the world. In so doing, it raises the broader issue of the relationship of history to the study of contemporary foreign policy and how these two enterprises might be better joined."--Jacket
