Aglaya Snetkov (2015) Russia's Security Policy under Putin: a critical perspektive. London: Routledge.

This book examines the evolution of Russia’s security policy under Putin in the 21st century, using a critical security studies approach.

Drawing on critical approaches to security the book investigates the interrelationship between the internal-external nexus and the politics of (in)security and regime-building in Putin’s Russia. In so doing, it evaluates the way that this evolving relationship between state identities and security discourses framed the construction of individual security policies/practices, and how, in turn, individual issues can impact on the wider state and security agendas. In addition it also traces the evolution of specific (de)securitizing discourses and practices within the Russian security field.

This book will be of much interest to scholars and students of Russian security, critical security studies and IR. Mehr dazu hier
