              Russia-China Relations in the Post-Crisis International Order (Paperback)

              The book explores developments in Russia-China relations in the aftermath of the global economic crisis, arguing that the crisis transformed their bilateral affairs, regional liaisons and, crucially, altered the roles both states play on the international arena. Discussing how Ru...sso-Chinese cooperation has accelerated in energy trade, arms sales and in the Russian Far East, the focus is on how the still mutually advantageous relationship has become more asymmetric than ever, reflecting China's meteoric rise and Russia's decline. These dynamics are explored through three perspectives: domestic, regional and global. Domestically, the book traces the role of political coalitions and key interest groups involved in how the two states shape their reciprocal policies. Changes in the regional dimension are examined with particular reference to a new status quo emerging in Central Asia. The book concludes by explaining how the changing relationship is affecting the international order, including the balance of power vis-a-vis the United States as well as Russia and China's changing attitudes towards global governance.

              Nation, Ethnicity and Race on Russian Television: Mediating Post-Soviet Difference
               

              Nation, Ethnicity and Race on Russian Television: Mediating Post-Soviet Difference (Hardback)

              By Hutchings, Stephen; Tolz, Vera

              Russia, one of the most ethno-culturally diverse countries in the world, provides a rich case study on how globalisation and associated international trends are disrupting, and causing radical rethinking of approaches to, inter-ethnic cohesion. The book highlights the importance ...of television broadcasting in shaping national discourse and the place of ethno-cultural diversity within it, arguing that television broadcasting's role here has been reinforced, rather than diminished, by the rise of new media technologies. The book shows, through an analysis of a wide range of television and news reporting, how discourse on a particular issue can have different overt and covert meanings, and that resulting action can be different again. The book discusses the tension between the imperative in Russia, and in other states including Western states, for security through centralised government and overall national cohesion, and the need to be sensitive to, and to accommodate, large and increasing migrant minorities, to respect democracy and human rights, and to have a correspondingly appropriate national discourse. The book compares the increasingly isolationist popular nationalism of Russia, which harks back to old-fashioned values, with the similar rise of the Tea Party in the United States and the UK Independence Party in Britain. Throughout, the book - an extremely rich, well-argued book - shows how difficult it is for Russia to strike the right balance given its Soviet legacy, weak civil society, extremely large native Muslim population, and state aligned media.

              Communicating Climate Change in Russia: State and Propaganda
               

              Communicating Climate Change in Russia: State and Propaganda (Hardback)

              The attitude of Russia towards climate change is extremely important for the success of climate change control policies worldwide, as Russia, with its cold climate and vast resources of carbon fuels, is one of the world's biggest polluters. Moreover, Russia frequently comes acros...s as not being very interested in containing environmental pollution. This book explores how issues to do with climate change are handled by the Russian media. It discusses how the state and economic elites have influenced Russia's environmental communication, with the state's control of the media strengthening since Putin came to power, and with control being exercised in some cases by ignoring or silencing the key issues. However, the book also shows how, recently, elites and the state in Russia have begun to realise that it is in the state's best interest to pursue more climate-oriented policies. The book concludes by examining how the communication of climate change issues in Russia could be improved and by assessing the extent to which a recent change in state climate policy could mean that media coverage of climate change in Russia will keep increasing.

              Civil Society in Putin's Russia

              Unlike other books on civil society in Russia which argue that Russia's civil society is relatively weak, and that democratisation in Russia went into reverse following Vladimir Putin's coming to power, this book contends that civil society in Russia is developing in a distinctiv...e way. It shows that government and elite-led drives to encourage civil society have indeed been limited, and that the impact of external promotion of civil society has also not been very successful. It demonstrates, however, that independent domestic grassroots movements are beginning to flourish, despite difficulties and adverse circumstances, and that this development fits well into the changing nature of contemporary Russian society.

              The revolutionary movements in late Tsarist Russia inspired a reaction by groups on the right. Although these groups were ostensibly defending the status quo, they were in fact, as this book argues, very radical in many ways. This book discusses these radical rightist groups, sho...wing how they developed considerable popular appeal across the whole Russian empire, securing support from a wide cross-section of society. The book considers the nature and organisation of the groups, their ideologies and polices on particular issues, and how they changed over time. The book concludes by examining how and why the groups lost momentum and support in the years immediately before the First World War, and explores how far present day rightist groups in Russia are connected to this earlier movement.

              Sarah Oates gives a detailed examination on a central theme in political science: the relationship between democracy and the mass media. This significant book contains a wealth of information and data, including: public opinion surveys, content analysis of television news, focus ...groups and in-depth interviews to examine why political parties and the mass media failed so spectacularly to aid in the construction of a democratic system in Russia. The analysis presents compelling evidence that television helped to tune out democracy as it served as a tool for leaders rather than a conduit of information in the service of the electorate or parties. In addition, focus groups and surveys show that the Russian audience are often more comfortable with authority rather than truth in television coverage. Within this framework, this fascinating work presents the colourful history of parties, elections and television during one of the most critical eras in Russian history and captures a particularly significant epoch in contemporary Russian politics.

              The study of Soviet youth has long lagged behind the comprehensive research conducted on Western European youth culture. In an era that saw the emergence of youth movements of all sorts across Europe, the Soviet Komsomol was the first state-sponsored youth organization, in the fi...rst communist country. Born out of an autonomous youth movement that emerged in 1917, the Komsomol eventually became the last link in a chain of Soviet socializing agencies which organized the young. Based on extensive archival research and building upon recent research on Soviet youth, this book broadens our understanding of the social and political dimension of Komsomol membership during the momentous period 1917 1932. It sheds light on the complicated interchange between ideology, policy and reality in the league's evolution, highlighting the important role ordinary members played. The transformation of the country shaped Komsomol members and their league's social identity, institutional structure and social psychology, and vice versa, the organization itself became a crucial force in the dramatic changes of that time. The book investigates the complex dialogue between the Communist Youth League and the regime, unravelling the intricate process that transformed the Komsomol into a mere institution for political socialization serving the regime's quest for social engineering and control.
