Summary
'Russia and the Relationship Between Law and Power' addresses the development of a self-serving international policy by Moscow to serve its interests and subjugate client regimes in Eastern Europe and Southwest Asia. The events leading to the Hungarian crisis in 1956, the Czech crisis in 1968, the Afghan invasion in 1979, the Polish crisis in 1981-82, the Baltic crisis in 1990, the Chechen invasions in both 1996 and 1999, and the crisis in Georgia in 2008 (including South Ossetia and Abkhazia) are carefully explored and dissected. Each of these interventions (except Afghanistan) was executed under claim of right under Rule IV of the Warsaw Pact, or a claim, in Chechnya and in Georgia in 2008, that Moscow was defending its inherent national interests as the result of the presence of its citizens in that territory. This is a text that will have wide appeal for Russophiles, students of international law and politics, historians, students of Eastern European studies, and undergraduates, graduate students, and professors in each of these disciplines.--
