RUSSIAN CIVIL-MILITARY RELATIONS: PUTIN'S LEGACY Carnegie Endowment, Washington, 2008, 126 p.
'This perceptive and well-informed study highlights the continuity of the Russian (civilian and military) security community's distrust of the outside world, fueled by NATO enlargement. Communism may be dead in Russia, but the obsession with ‘threats' continues, rallying the population and keeping security elites in power. This makes Russia an uncomfortable world player to live with. A must read."
