Editorial Reviews

Contributors analyze the foreign policy institutions and priorities of the former Soviet republics and the new states of Eurasia, emphasizing the geostrategic factor in international relations, and considering the need for economic aid as a determinant of foreign policy. Topics include Russia's Far Eastern policy, foreign security in the Baltic states, and the sociopolitical environment of the Central Asian states. This is the fourth of ten projected volumes.
