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:

  • Alexander K. Bollfrass and Stephen Herzog argue that despite facing major challenges, the global nuclear order remains resilient

  • Maria Shagina assesses Russia’s status as an energy superpower, concluding that it has a bleak future in the long term

  • Erik Jones argues that the war in Ukraine has disrupted the European Central Bank’s ability to operate by consensus

  • Jeffrey E. Kline, James A. Russell and James J. Wirtz contend that the US Navy may struggle to adapt to the pace of technological, social and environmental change

  • Ray Takeyh revisits the Iranian Revolution, finding that Jimmy Carter did not so much ‘lose’ Iran as misunderstand it

And five more thought-provoking pieces, as well as our regular Book Reviews and Noteworthy column.

Editor: Dr Dana Allin

Managing Editor: Jonathan Stevenson

Associate Editor: Carolyn West

Editorial Assistant: Charlie Zawadzki
