Book Description

Survival, the IISS’s bimonthly journal, challenges conventional wisdom and brings fresh, often controversial, perspectives on strategic issues of the moment.

In this issue:

    • Nadezhda Arbatova examines the ideology and motivations behind Russia’s neo-Eurasianist project
    • Georg Löfflmann contends that Donald Trump’s foreign policy does not spell the end of the liberal international order but does challenge the notion that liberal hegemony lacks a legitimate alternative
    • Hadi Ajili and Mahsa Rouhi analyse Iran’s military strategy as Tehran continues to alarm neighbours with its regional activities
    • And 12 more thought-provoking pieces, as well as our regular book reviews and noteworthy quotes and statistics

‘In a world of complex security challenges the need for serious, thoughtful analysis is greater than ever. Survival’s combination of elegant writing and rigorous scholarship from the world’s top experts makes it essential reading for both practitioners and academics.’

Professor Sir Lawrence Freedman, War Studies King's College London
