In this book, Alex Battler questions the assertion of Russia’s status as a great power in the acuminate form. The author reveals the contradictions between Russia’s real modern potential and its foreign policy objectives formulated by official Moscow.
The author has formulated laws on the Pole, the Center of Power, and Force. Battler introduces some new concepts of the Theory of International Relations: The Foreign Policy Potential of the State and The Law on the Optimal Balance Between the Costs of Domestic and Foreign Policy.
On almost all problems raised by the author, his views do not coincide with generally accepted interpretations and approaches.
The second extended edition of the book “The Twenty-First Century: The World Without Russia” includes updated copyright and newly added parts and paragraphs.
