9780268042288: Whose World Order: Russia's Perception of American Ideas after the Cold War

In Whose World Order? Andrei P. Tsygankov examines how Russian elites engage American ideas of world order and why Russians perceive these ideas as unlikely to promote a just or stable international system. Tsygankov focuses on Francis Fukuyama’s “end of history” thesis, which argues for the global ascendancy of Western-style market democracy, and Samuel Huntington’s “clash of civilizations,” which drew attention to what Huntington perceived to be an increasingly dominant global disorder. Tsygankov argues that Russian intellectuals received the ideas of these two prominent American scholars critically. Tsygankov traces the reasons for Russian perceptions to the ethnocentric nature of the two sets of ideas and the inability of their authors to fully appreciate Russia’s distinctive historical, geopolitical, and institutional perspectives.

Throughout this rich study Tsygankov points to the need for scholars to study cultural perceptions in world politics as a means of eliminating some of the obstacles that stand in the way of a truly global society. He also raises the issue of whether or not intellectuals should accept moral responsibility for the ideas they produce and what implications this may have for international relations theory.

About the Author:

Andrei P. Tsygankov is professor of international relations and political science at San Francisco State University.

Review:

“Anyone seeking to understand the Russian side of the debate should read this informative and insightful study. Among recent works on the American-Russian relationship, it stands out as an original contribution to our understanding of the Russian and American encounter over theories of global politics. The book’s dialectical examination of that encounter invites us to enter into the discussion and the debate as well. Upper-level college students, graduate students, Russian specialists, and, for that matter, informed general readers will find Whose World Order? most rewarding.” —Perspectives on Political Science, Vol. 33, No. 4, Fall 2004

“In this absorbing study of post-cold war American-Russian relations, Andrei Tsygankov goes beneath and beyond contemporary American debates concerning unilateralism, bilateralism, and multilateralism to generate insights and raise questions about the twenty-first century’s greatest world order challenge: finding a sustainable basis for international and global cooperation on issues of urgent common concern.”  —Hayward R. Alker, University of Southern California

Book Description University of Notre Dame Press, United States, 2004. Hardback. Book Condition: New. New.. Language: English . Brand New Book. Intellectual ideas on the international community can make important contributions to how cultures perceive one another. Yet these same ideas can also be misunderstood by other societies when they are framed in a culturally exclusive manner. In Whose World Order? Andrei P. Tsygankov examines how Russian elites engage American ideas of world order and why Russians perceive these ideas as unlikely to promote a just or stable international system. Tsygankov focuses on Francis Fukuyama s end of history thesis, which argues for the global ascendancy of Western-style market democracy, and Samuel Huntington s clash of civilizations, which drew attention to what Huntington perceived to be an increasingly dominant global disorder. Tsygankov argues that Russian intellectuals received the ideas of these two prominent American scholars critically. Despite Huntington s and Fukuyama s intentions to contribute to the development of freedom and stability in the world, Russians viewed their theories at best as limitations to social and cross-cultural creativity and at worst as justification for a war-mongering, West-centered global dictatorship.
