TERRORISM: COMMENTARY ON SECURITY DOCUMENTS VOLUME 146

Russia's Resurgence

Edited by Douglas C. Lovelace, Jr.

Terrorism: Commentary on Security Documents

  • Examines Russia's adoption of "hybrid warfare" tactics to achieve its expansionist foreign policy objectives
  • Evaluates the Russian Federation's military policy, which may be used to justify aggressive behavior on the grounds that it is necessary "to protect its citizens abroad" (and, by its extension, to safeguard the interests of ethnic Russians living in neighboring countries)
  • Considers the impact of Russia's recent military build-up on its position as a regional and global military power
  • Analyzes Russia's strategy in interceding on behalf of the Syrian government and the increasing influence of Russia on Middle Eastern politics
