Turkey's new geopolitics : from the Balkans to Western China by Graham E Fuller( Book )

6 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 346 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With the astonishing transformations in the geopolitics of the world since the collapse of the Soviet Union, Turkey has been profoundly affected by the changes on its periphery. For the first time since the beginning of the century, a Turkic world has blossomed, giving Turkey potential new foreign policy clout from the Balkans across the Caucasus and into Central Asia and Western China. These geopolitical opportunities have dramatically changed the character of Turkey itself, once an isolationist, Eurocentered NATO ally. At the same time, Turkey has undergone an internal evolution over the last decade, making it an attractive model of Middle Eastern development because of its increasingly free market, democratic governance, and secularist outlook. This book explores the character of the new Turkey, assessing its foreign policy options and interpreting the significance of those choices for the Middle East, Central Asia, Europe, and the United States

Soviet foreign policy and the revolutions of 1989 in Eastern Europe by Ronald D Asmus( Book )

9 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 167 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report analyzes the collapse of Communist rule in Eastern Europe in 1989 and assesses the role of changes in Soviet foreign policy in precipitating this collapse. It finds that the preceding 40 years of economic and social failure by the Communist regimes, the illegitimacy of Communist rule, the consolidation of societal opposition, loss of confidence in the ruling elites, and the improvement in East-West relations created the conditions leading to the collapse of Communist rule. However, the change in Soviet foreign policy under Gorbachev was the precipitating event. Once change began, the removal of the Communist leadership in one country led to upheavals in others. The Soviet leadership did not foresee the collapse of Communism in Eastern Europe; rather, it believed that the old regimes would be replaced by reformers. It also failed to see the unification of Germany as an outcome of the collapse of the Honecker regime. In the future, Soviet influence in Eastern Europe will be diminished but will not ebb to the low levels of the pre-World War II era. Economic and mutual security concerns will continue to tie Eastern Europe to the Soviet Union (or its successor), although much more loosely than in the past
Relations between the Soviet Union and its Eastern European allies : a survey : a report prepared for United States Air Force Project Rand by J. F Brown( Book )

11 editions published between 1975 and 1982 in English and held by 141 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A comprehensive survey of Soviet East-European relations since 1969, analyzing Soviet goals in Eastern Europe, the successes and failures of Soviet policy in pursuing those goals, and future prospects. Policies toward the East European countries differed considerably in the Khrushchev and Brezhnev eras. In seeking a balance between cohesion and viability, Khrushchev instituted reforms in economic structure, planning, and policy that led to increased nationalism and a serious threat to Soviet absolutism. The Brezhnev leadership since 1964 has tilted the balance back sharply in favor of cohesion and the restoration of Soviet control. This report appraises regionwide developments in the Eastern European countries and discusses the bilateral relations of each country with the Soviet Union. Intra-East European ties, which are of considerably less importance, are also briefly considered. The report concludes with a discussion of problems and prospects for the immediate future and suggests some possible developments that may occur with the eventual succession of a new Soviet leadership

The challenge to Soviet interests in Eastern Europe : Bulgaria and Czechoslovakia by J. F Brown( Book )

4 editions published between 1986 and 1988 in English and held by 102 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Bulgaria and Czechoslovakia have long been considered the Soviet Union's most stable allies in Eastern Europe, and neither appears likely to present challenges to Soviet interests in the near future. Nonetheless, both countries have been victims of the general economic downturn in the Eastern Bloc, and each is characterized by political trends that, combined with economic sluggishness, could indirectly threaten Soviet hegemony. This Note examines socioeconomic and political developments in Bulgaria and Czechoslovakia and considers the prospects of new instabilities in these two countries. The emphasis is on examining domestic factors that could lead to new challenges to Soviet interests in Eastern Europe in the next decade."--Rand abstracts
Poland since martial law by J. F Brown( Book )

5 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 100 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The coup carried out on December 13, 1981, by General Jaruzelski and the Polish military quickly achieved its immediate aim--the destruction of the free trade union, Solidarity. While the highly effective operation was done under Soviet pressure, it was achieved by Poles acting against Poles. In the 15 months prior to the coup, Solidarity had eroded much of the communist power structure that had taken 35 years to build; however, the military and the police remained intact and loyal to communist authority. General Jaruzelski was able to pacify Poland, but even seven years after the coup, he has not been able to normalize Poland or to activate it. This paper describes the Jaruzelski regime, including characteristics of Jaruzelski's policy, struggles inside the regime, relations with the Catholic Church, and factors behind the "liberalization." It reviews the state of the Polish economy, describes the reform movement, and discusses the impasse between rulers and ruled."--Rand abstracts
