Abstract: Professor A. D. Shutov’s book is dedicated to a perpetually contested topic in historical
science, by which historians and politicians of various ideologies consistently clash. The discovery of
the deeper reasons for Soviet Union’s dissolution, and the study of ways that lead to the revival of a
country, define the scientific importance of this work. The research of historical processes is impartial
and fundamental, as it lacks diplomatic understatements and politically correct condescension
that statesmen and politicians of all ranks are notorious for. As it appears, the book lacks speculation,
just the truth, and by shedding light on this truth, the author pursues the only goal — to study ways
to revive of our Fatherland, to eliminate complications and to improve the lives of the people. Moreover,
A. D. Shutov’s book is one of the first attempts at comprehensive analysis of the work of CIS as
an international regional organization. Based on a broad circle of sources and literature, including archive
materials, the monography is quite encyclopedic in its content, and presents a profound scientific,
theoretical and practical interest, and may serve as a study guide on history and political science.
Keywords: international relations, foreign policy, USSR, political regime, Warsaw treaty, state, interests, values, security.
