Tsygankov’s ambitious study of Russian foreign policy seeks to explain and assess three patterns in Russia's relations with the West that reappear throughout Russian history-cooperation, defensiveness, and assertiveness. Following Reus-Smit, Tsygankov argues that states have a moral purpose that drives their behavior, best captured by the concept of honor. Russia’s honor has two essential dimensions-European and local (5). Tsygankov is interested in correcting Western perceptions of Russia as anti-Western. He focuses on Russia’s honor as loyalty to the West, or Europeanness, as the.

The book analyzes 10 key periods in the history of Russia’s relations with the West during the past two centuries, and formulates a theory regarding its foreign policy combining the achievements of realism and constructivism. In international politics, honor is related to a state’s readiness to defend its dignity and obligations as regards a major social community, either domestic or external. Honor means setting standards for behavior and affects the government decisions to no less extent than so-called national interests. Just like individuals, states do not live by bread alone.

Russia’s relations with the West have always been complicated and prone to misperception. If the West has struggled in determining whether Russia is part of the West, Russia has been equally uncertain how to understand its own fundamental relationship with the West.

Tsygankov believes that the Russian sense of honor is the key to understanding the long history of the country’s relations with the West. His exegesis applies well to the Putin era, but for the larger picture, theory’s demand for tidiness forces a certain amount of cutting and splicing of history. Russia and the West From Alexander to Putin: Honor in International Relations. MORE BY Robert Legvold. By Andrei P.

Since Russia has re-emerged as a global power, its foreign policies have come under close scrutiny. In Russia and the West from Alexander to Putin, Andrei P. Tsygankov identifies honor as the key concept by which Russia's international relations are determined. He argues that Russia's interests in acquiring power, security and welfare are filtered through this cultural belief and that different conceptions of honor provide an organizing framework that produces policies of cooperation, defensiveness and assertiveness in relation to the West. Using ten case studies spanning a period from the early nineteenth century to the present day - including the Holy Alliance, the Triple Entente and the Russia-Georgia war - Tsygankov's theory suggests that when it perceives its sense of honor to be recognized, Russia cooperates with the Western nations; without such a recognition it pursues independent policies either defensively or assertively.

The author presents an interesting approach of viewing Russia’s foreign policy from the perspective of honor. The strong side of the book is its regard for both realist and constructivist theory of IR, and presenting Russia’s motives behind its foreign policy as not only driven by material power, but also by ideational factors such as honor. Although it has some important insights, the persuasive power of the argument remains relatively low. While reading one can’t get rid of a feeling that the author wants to push forward his argument no matter what. The argument often stands on shaky grounds, the evidence is weak and contentious. However, I would certainly recommend to read this book just to get a new perspective and to broaden your understanding of Russia.

If you want to know what is behind Russian foreign policy zigzags - this is the book you should read!
Unlike so many "pseudo-experts" on Russia, Tsygankov has hands-on knowledge of Russian culture and therefore understand what others fail to grasp. Pleasure to read! Thank you Andrei for another great book!
