Near Abroad

Putin, the West, and the Contest over Ukraine and the Caucasus

Gerard Toal

  • Provides a compelling account of the origins of the Russian-Georgian War of 2008, Russia's annexation of Crimea and the current war in Eastern Ukraine
  • Argues that liberal and realist explanations of these wars fail to appreciate the geographical entanglements characterizing Russia's Near Abroad
  • Illustrates how revanchist desires and rescue fantasies characterize the geopolitical cultures of all sides in the contest over Georgia and Ukraine.
  • Makes the case for moving beyond Cold War inspired 'thin geopolitics' in US foreign policy towards Russia and its neighboring states
