dc.description.abstractThe Russian military largely went below the radar of Western interest after the disintegration of the Soviet Union. More than a decade after the creation of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, they have become again the object of interest for scholars – this time, both Western and Russian, as demonstrated by the reviewed volume, whose editors assembled a group of extraordinarily knowledgeable experts from Russia and the West. In his introduction, Steven Miller explains that the purpose this study has been to “assess the military that Russia now possesses.” He notes that despite the collapse of the Soviet Union, Russia’s defense policy “has enormous implications for … global security, ” because it is a major power in Eurasia and global military power. Moreover, it is the only of the post-Soviet states that has “residual superpower mindset.”en_US
