THREAD #Russia 14 POINTS #Maps+ critical #Geography #Geopolitics. Here is my hot take on “Understanding Russia,” a new book by Marlene Laruelle (@PONARS) and Jean Radvanyi (2018). I hardly agree w/ all "French Eurasia" & "anti-Russophobe" arguments; it IS worth a CLOSE read. 1/16
1. (1814/5-2014) Talleyrand 1814-5 & Keynes 1919 argument, & vs. Obama’s “regional” neo-containment (2008-14): Defeated Russia’s greatpowerness (derzhavnost’) is NOT avoidable. Sidelining a mil-nuclear & gas-rich power is dangerous. (Merkel: re: Putin in “another world.”) 2/16
2. (1954-91) One can consider, for the sake of argument, a postwar Moscow-Paris-Washington axis. The “disease” that neo-Empire Russia(ns) have is "trauma," a kind of geo-body loss, historically akin to French postcolonial retrenchment in proto-EU after the Algerian War. 3/16
