Avaldini, Emil. “China, Russia and New Eurasian Order”. Routledge Focus. 04,28,2023


This book offers a comprehensive understanding of the Eurasian vision of Russia and China and their perception of each other’s Eurasian projects. Using the idea of “hierarchical order” as an analytical framework for the explanation and understanding of the burgeoning Sino-Russian relationship, the work provides different perspectives on the growing competition between the US and China, and Russia’s increasing reliance on China. The book will be of interest to scholars working on international relations with a particular focus on Russian and Chinese foreign policies. It will also appeal to those interested in concepts of regionalism and spheres of influence.
