About this title


This is the evolving story of the armed forces and security organizations of Russia and her 14 former partners in the Soviet Union, with the emphasis on events and personalities, and how these impinge on the structure and politics of the individual states. It shows above all their deep influence throughout the life and politics of a vast and still developing area. Now in its second edition, the report has been extensively updated including coverage of the recent presidential election and of events, such as Chechnya. Volume one covers the Commonwealth of Independent States and, in a major section, the evolution of the Russian High Command and the Armed and Security Forces since the late 1980s. It contains, inter alia, studies and assessments of all the relative organizations, including the Security Council, Defence Ministry, General Staff, individual arms of service, support arms, academies and schools, counter-intelligence service, space forces and internal and border troops. It is comprehensively indexed, and includes both organizational tables and lists of known posts and their incumbents in the defence field. Volume two extends this to the remaining 14 republics of the former Soviet Union. Volume three lists the known biographies of some 4000 "key" Soviet officers and officials in the defence field of interest.
