No. 31 Military Threats and Threat Assessment in Russia's New Defense Doctrine and Security Concept

Stephen Blank ($7.50) Russia's leadership responds to perceived threats with forceful solutions, imperial adventures and a general hard-line approach to world affairs; this threatens regional security as well as democracy and security inside Russia.


No. 32 Nationalism, Culture, and Religion in Croatia since 1990

Vjeran Pavlakovic et al. ($7.50) Far from being culturally homogeneous, Croatia is home to alternative ethnic, religious, and popular cultural currents, as Vjeran Pavlakovic, Vjeko Perica, and Gordana Crnkovic show in successive chapters.

No. 33 Russian Policy Toward the Middle East since the Collapse of the Soviet Union: The Yeltsin Legacy and the Challenge for Putin

No. 35 The Land Question in Ukraine and Russia

Stephen K. Wegren ($7.50) In the Soviet period, Ukraine and Russia had similar agricultural systems. During the 1990s, however, the two diverged, as Russia pursued neo-liberal reforms while Ukraine maintained the Soviet system of agriculture. With new agrarian reforms introduced in Ukraine in late 1999 and into 2000, Ukraine may pass Russia, although significant obstacles remain.


No. 36 Russian Regionalism: The Economic Dimension

Steven Rosefielde, et al. ($7.50) In this collection, the authors analyze rates of foreign direct investment, exports, dollar receipts, revenue transfers and unemployment to document the failure of Russia's regions to competitively integrate themselves into the global economic system since the collapse of the Soviet Union. At the same time, they illuminate the systemic causes of Russia's insularity and the evolving ties between Moscow and the regional periphery.


No. 37 Regionalism in Russia's Foreign Policy in the 1990s: A Case of "Reversed Anarchy"

Mikhail Alexseev ($7.50) Since the collapse of the Soviet Union, regional decentralization has proved to be a double edged sword in the Russian Federation. On the one hand it threatened economic and political fragmentation, but on the other hand it offered greater opportunities for Russia's incorporation into the world economy and faster economic development than would have been available under Communism. The author argues that a condition of structural anarchy reversed explains why Russian decision-makers have viewed internationalization and cross-border development as a security threat and discounted potential economic opportunities.


No. 38 Macedonia's Child-Grandfathers: The Transnational Politics of Memory, Exile and Return, 1948-1998

Keith S. Brown ($7.50) In 1948, 28,000 children left Northern Greece as refugees during a brutal civil war. In this paper, the author traces the role of these "child refugees"--as victims of the Cold War, as objects of nationalist ideology and as political actors in their own right--in modern Macedonian history.


No. 39 'Great Russians' and 'Little Russians': Russian-Ukrainian Relations and Perceptions in Historical Perspective

Andreas Kappeler ($7.50) Since Ukraine and Russia declared independence in 1991, their relationship has become a crucial issue in international politics. The author analyzes the historical legacy of interrelations between the two countries by looking specifically at their mutual representations of history, interactions between elites and high cultures, and mutual perceptions of each other since the 17th century.


No. 40 Modernization through Resistance: War, Mir, Tsar, and Law in the World of the Pre-reform Russian Peasantry

Hugh D. Hudson, Jr. ($7.50) Starting in earnest in the seventeenth century, the tsarist regime sought to break free of the restraints imposed on the mobilization of resources by the tribute collecting hierarchy, a form of state-societal interaction that reached back into Russia's history over some thousand years. This work investigates the efforts of the people of Russia to preserve that very social order through an analysis of a number of aspects of state-peasant interaction at the end of the eighteenth and the first half of the nineteenth century: the peasant definition of "just" demands on their labor, the peasant understanding of "the nation," the peasant perception of the tsar and the peasant conception of legality.


No. 41 Back to the Front: Russian Interests in the New Eastern Europe

Janusz Bugajski ($7.50) Janusz Bugajski examines a Russia that has been unable to give up its imperial ambitions following the Soviet collapse. While Russia sought to hinder an eastward-expanding NATO and EU, Bugajski demonstrates how Russia's efforts have backfired and only encouraged the more rapid integration of much of Eastern Europe into Western institutions. This has been true of the Baltic states, the former Warsaw Pact states of the Czech Republic, Poland, Romania, and Hungary, as well as certain of the Balkan states. In addition, Russia saw its initially more Russia-friendly allies of Bulgaria and Slovakia also seek integration into Western bodies by the end of the 1990s. While Russia still retains influence in its "near abroad," Bugajski seems to suggest that certain of these states are ripe for repeating the "Bulgaria-Slovakia" example. This, he argues, is also dependent upon whether the EU and NATO begin to regard Russia as the legitimate center of power in much of its remaining "near abroad".


No. 42 Iconography, Power, and Expertise in Imperial Russia

Andrew Jenks ($7.50) The author examines Russian icon painting in the nineteenth century, highlighting Russia's self-definition in comparison with the West, the paradoxical relationship of elites to "the people," including Old Believers, and the "exploitation of academic authority as an instrument of political and social control."  Jenks shows that the regime used the craft of icon painting to reinforce its own official version of Russian society, control political life, and "forestall the creation of a political nation of free and equal citizens."  The paper culminates with Alexander III's coronation and the formation of Nicholas II's 1901 Committee for the Tutelage of Russian National Icon Painting, showing the "pivotal role" icon experts played in "reviving Muscovite conceptions of an estate-based 'Holy Russia.'"
