Russian Civil-Military Relations: Putin's Legacy

Russian Civil-Military Relations: Putin's Legacy

Ratings: (0)|Views: 1,203 |Likes:
As Russia reasserts itself on the international stage, the relationship between its civilian and military spheres remains one of the determining factors in the organization of political power. Thomas Gomart’s Russian Civil-Military Relations: Putin’s Legacy looks beyond traditional dualism between the Kremlin and the military, introducing the role of the security services in Russian power distribution. With the support of the siloviki and justification through the fight against “international terrorism,” Putin worked throughout his administration to reestablish presidential control over the military. As Russia transitions to Dmitry Medvedev’s presidency, it is important to review the Putin presidency, which has given many of the country’s institutions their shape, but also reach back further into postcommunist and Soviet history for an understanding of the realities of today.

Russian Civil-Military Relations provides crucial analysis of the nature and evolution of the balance between civilian and military institutions. These relations will continue to influence regime development, security policy, and societal attitudes that build from Putin’s Russia, to Medvedev’s administration, and into the future.
