From Moscow with coercion: Russian deterrence theory and strategic culture

From Moscow with coercion: Russian deterrence theory and strategic culture The recent Russian approach to strategy has linked nuclear, conventional and informational (cyber) tools of influence into one integrated mechanism. The article traces the intellectual history of this Russian cross-domain concept, discusses its essence and highlights its destabilising effects. By analysing a case outside of Western strategic thought, it demonstrates how strategic concepts evolve differently in various cultural realms and argues for a tailored approach for exploring coercion policies of different actors. The findings of the study are applicable beyond the Russian case, and relevant to scholars and actors exploring, utilising or responding to cross-domain coercion strategy. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Journal of Strategic Studies Taylor & Francis
