Reviews for Journal of Soviet and Post-Soviet Politics and S - 2015/2: Double Special Issue: Back from Afghanistan: The Experiences of Soviet Afghan War

A splendid analysis of the changing narrative of 'Putinism' and of the nature of the political thought that lies at the heart of the Putin system ... should be required reading and a starting point for Western foreign policy-makers with an interest in the former Soviet space ... quite simply the best thing I've read on what is driving Russian foreign and domestic policy today. --Dr. David White, University of Birmingham on JSPPS 1,1
