Of Power and Greatness

Of Power and Greatness

(p.407) Chapter Fifteen Of Power and Greatness

Dmitri Trenin

NYU Press

This chapter analyzes the significance of exiting from an empire as part of the transformational agenda, and the complexities of the process. It takes stock of Russia's achievements and failures in redesigning its new place and role in the world. It also seeks to put Russia into a broader international historical context and compares its experience with that of some other ex-imperial powers. This comparison should add to the understanding of the challenges facing the Russians today as they proceed to reinvent or at least reimagine their country yet again. Finally, the chapter explores the potential for an international role for Russia that is commensurate with its promise and its aspirations and is useful for the rest of the global community.

Keywords:   Russia's achievements, Russia's failures, international historical context, ex-imperial powers, global community
