Kistler, James D. (Cover Artist) Carlisle Barracks, PA: Strategic Studies Institute, U.S. Army War College, 1995. Presumed first edition/first printing. Wraps. viii, 41, [3] p. 24 cm. Endnotes. From an on-line posting: "As recent events demonstrate, Russia's political system has yet to stabilize. This is particularly the case with civil-military relations for, as the course of the Chechnya invasion reveals, control by the government over the military is erratic and the military is all too often politicized. Dr. Stephen J. Blank has served as the Strategic Studies Institute s expert on the Soviet bloc and the post-Soviet world since 1989. He has written many articles and conference papers on Russia, the Commonwealth of Independent States, and Eastern European security issues. Dr. Blank s current research deals with proliferation and the revolution in military affairs, and energy and security in Eurasia. Dr. Blank holds a B.A. in history from the University of Pennsylvania, and an M.A. and Ph.D. in history from the University of Chicago." Condition: Very good. No dust jacket. Cover has slight wear and soiling.
