PUTIN’S RUSSIA by Angela Stent - proposal
We are delighted to present you Dr. Angela Stent’s proposal for her first book for the trade PUTIN’S RUSSIA.
How does Putin view the outside world and how do other countries view Russia? Why were initial Western expectations that a post-Soviet Russia would gradually become a liberal market democracy so wrong? And where will Russia move when Putin has left the Kremlin?
PUTIN’S RUSSIA will be the result of years of extensive academic work by one of the foremost experts on the subject, on the triangular political and economic relationship between the United States, Russia and Europe. PUTIN’S RUSSIA will outline the challenges for the next US president and for European and Asian leaders as they deal and will continue to deal with Putin's Russia—and with a post-Putin world. This book will explore these questions, seeking to explain contemporary Russia in its domestic and international context.
