The transitional politics of Eurasian space is marked by a constant struggle among three sets of ideas and institutions: the first is the remarkable resilience of Soviet ideas and institutions; second, an attempt by the regimes of these states to reinvent the historical and cultural traditions of pre-Soviet periods; and third is an attempt by a section of the powerful elite to superimpose Western liberal ideas and institutions. There is a strange intertwining of these ideas and institutions.
This book examines the extent to which the post-Soviet politics has departed from the Soviet one. What are the new ideational structures emerging in these states and how far have they crystallised into institutions? What are the external influences which are shaping the institutions in the Eurasian space? And finally, what are the various dynamics of geopolitics in this region? Experts from various countries will delve into the shifting dynamics of Eurasian politics.
