"The range of issues, the depth of their treatment, and the collection of authors-top scholars in the field makes the Routledge Handbook of Russian Security a must read for all those seeking to understand Russia's perspective on global security."-- Andrei P. Tsygankov, San Francisco State University, USA
"One of the doyens of Russia studies has pulled together a star-studded line up of outstanding writers who together have produced a truly impressive volume on Russian security policy. The term 'definitive' is sometimes used too liberally to describe only good books. But this is a truly outstanding work of scholarship to which the word 'definitive' can be attached without any hesitation at all."-- Michael Cox, London School Of Economics, UK
"Roger Kanet, a respected authority on the Soviet Union and post-communist Russia, has once again created an ensemble of top-flight scholars to explore many different aspects of Russian foreign policy. The essays in this superb book are both uniformly excellent and timely, and Kanet's introductions to each of its segments are invaluable in providing background and context."-- M. Rajan Menon, City College of New York / City University of New York, USA
