To celebrate the launch of International Affairs’ Russian themed January 2012 issue, Chatham House and Wiley-Blackwell are making a historical selection of articles freely available. The articles, ranging from 1934 to 2008, trace developments in Russian and Soviet international relations—from the domestic roots of the Soviet Union’s foreign policy and its relations with both the East and the West, to Russia’s current position in the international system and its role as an ‘emerging power’. The series provides a compelling overview of significant issues and shifts in Russian foreign policy which over time have shaped both its external relationships and its internal politics.
