The Russian Presidency Of Dmitry Medvedev 2008 2012 from the Author: J. L. Black. The term "tandem" was used to describe the Putin-Medvedev combination which ruled Russia from 2008 to 2012, when Medvedev was president and Putin prime minister. Many people saw Putin as the real wielder of power, with Medvedev as his puppet. Others, however, saw Medvedev as a visionary, someone who envisioned large scale schemes - even though these schemes have not yet come to fruition. At the same time, many in the West regarded Medvedev favourably, and gave him credit for raising expectations among both the elite and the middle classes in Russia in such a way as to make it difficult for the Russian state to return to its old ways. This book presents a comprehensive survey of the Medvedev presidency, covering all areas including politics, the economy, international relations and social developments. The author concludes that it is still too early to assess Medvedev's achievements definitively.

Ethnic Relations In Post Soviet Russia from the Author: Andrew Foxall. "By focusing on the 'everyday' and the local, this book presents an understanding of ethnic relations in post-Soviet Russia. It contributes to the construction of a record of history after the collapse of the USSR and the attempts of the Soviet government to eradicate ethno-nationalism. The book extends the application of literature on ethnic relations and political geography to include the post-Soviet North Caucasus, and it raises questions about sovereignty, territoriality, and nationalism, emphasizing the importance of both the rural and urban dimensions to interethnic relations in the post-Soviet space"--

Introducing Comparative Politics from the Author: Stephen Orvis. Organized thematically around important questions in comparative politics—Who rules? What explains political behavior? Where and why?—Introducing Comparative Politics integrates a set of extended case studies of 11 core countries into the narrative. Serving as touchstones, the cases are set in chapters where they make the most sense topically—not separated from theory or in a separate volume—and vividly illustrate issues in cross-national context. The book’s hybrid organization allows you to teach the way you want to teach and gives students a more accurate sense of comparative study.

Russian Foreign Policy Under Dmitry Medvedev 2008 2012 from the Author: Valerie Pacer. Although the presidency of Dmitry Medvedev is often seen as a continuation of Vladimir Putin’s presidency, with the same policies applied in the same way, this book disagrees, arguing that Medvedev’s foreign policy was significantly different from Putin’s. The book considers especially the relationship between Russia and the Euro-Atlantic security configuration, including both NATO and the Organisation for Security and Co-operation in Europe, a relationship of great importance to Russia, given constant attention. It discusses a wide variety of issues, including "frozen conflicts", security co-operation and nuclear weapons reductions, highlights the different tone and approach under Medvedev, exemplified especially by his draft European Security Treaty, and shows how after Putin’s return to the presidency there has been a shift in foreign policy, with much great emphasis on influencing Russia’s immediate neighbours and on Eurasian union, and less emphasis on rapprochement and co-operation.
