From the Soviet Union & the Challenge of the Future Series

This landmark four-volume series is the result of the second international conference of the Professors World Peace Academy in Geneva, Switzerland. Participants at the conference examined practically every aspect of Soviet reality, including politics, society, economy, ideology, culture, nationalities, dependencies, and international relations. Presenting the views of over eighty distinguished scholars in the field, these books make important, innovative contributions to our knowledge and understanding of the Soviet Union’s past, present and future.

Vol. IV: Russia and the World

This collection of nineteen provocative and visionary analyses is the work of some of the world’s foremost Sovietologists. Russia and the World sheds new light on the recent events surrounding the U.S.S.R.’s evolving international relations. Part I, entitled “From Current State of Affairs to Possible Crisis”, includes essays on Soviet foreign policy alternatives under Gorbachev; arms control and U.S.- Soviet relations; Russo-Chinese relations; Soviet military policy, and other issues. In Part II, “From Crisis to a Post-Soviet Regime”, scholars examine issues that include German unity in the post-Soviet world; the fate of the Marxist-Leninist regimes in Africa; post-Soviet Russia and the West; and the Realpolitik scenarios of Russia and China.
