For over two decades, the American Foreign Policy Council (AFPC) has played an important role in the United States foreign policy debate. Founded in 1982, AFPC is a non-profit organization dedicated to bringing information to those who make or influence the foreign policy of the U.S. and to assisting world leaders, particularly in the former USSR, with building democracies and market economies. Widely recognized as a source of timely, insightful analysis on issues of foreign policy and international security, AFPC works closely with members of Congress, the Executive Branch, and the policymaking community.
In Reviving Greater Russia, author Herman Pirchner, Jr. has compiled an authoritative assessment of neo-imperialistic forces in Russia and their chances of success in Belarus, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Moldova, and Ukraine. His extensive travel and meticulous research, made possible through the support of the Smith-Richardson Foundation, have yielded a unique, first hand look at the ethnic ties, religious frictions and empirical bonds that continue to influence politics along Russia's borders. It is obligatory reading for all those who seek to understand Russia's policies in its 'near abroad.' -- William Schneider Jr., Former Undersecretary of State * From The Foreword *
