9780742517042: The Kaliningrad Question (The New International Relations of Europe)

The only comprehensive English-language study of Kaliningrad, this invaluable book explores the history and uncertain fate of the former East Prussia. When the USSR collapsed in 1991, Kaliningrad became a Russian exclave. As its neighbors turned to the West for investment and leadership, Kaliningrad's own source of income and stability―a massive military presence―was withdrawn. The 1998 economic crisis made the situation even more desperate, and by the end of the 1990s, Russia's westernmost oblast was deemed a "black hole" of social and economic decay, not the future Hong Kong once imagined.

Today, with the eastward enlargement of the EU and NATO, many fear that Russia may remilitarize the region and possibly deploy nuclear weapons there. The U.S. government has expressed willingness to work with the EU and Russia to address the Kaliningrad question, but Moscow has remained wary of Washington's involvement in the exclave, in part due to the failure of the United States to recognize Kaliningrad as a de jure possession of Russia. Although some analysts believe U.S.-Russian cooperation in addressing the Kaliningrad question could promote greater harmony in their relationship, most Western policymakers know little about the region.

Richard Krickus, a leading expert on Kaliningrad, fills a crucial gap by tracing its long history of unstable possession, critiquing Russian and Western policy, and mapping out possible futures for the oblast. The Kaliningrad Question will be an invaluable guide to understanding the region and the potential flash points of conflict associated with it.

About the Author:

Richard J. Krickus is professor emeritus of political science at Mary Washington College.

Review:

Krickus provides a comprehensive and objective study of the Kalinigrad question, including a well-written historic overview, analysis of the status of the region under Soviet and Russian rule, a look at Kaliningrad as a source of tensions between Russia and Lithuania and Russia and Poland, the role of Belarus, and discussion of the question of separatism. The book will be useful for everyone who wants to know about the complexities of the Kaliningrad question. Recommended for general collections, upper-division undergraduates and above. (CHOICE)

Offers a broad picture of the area's peculiar issues. (The Chronicle of Higher Education)

Well researched and lucidly argued. This book is an important addition to the library about current events in Russia, especially in light of the very limited literature on the Kaliningrad issue. (Ilya Prizel, University of Pittsburgh)
