520    Although the score of countries comprising Russia's near 
       abroad (the former non-Russian Soviet republics) and far 
       abroad (the former non-Russian Warsaw Pact states) are 
       behaving with variably increasing independence in their 
       domestic and foreign policies, Russia continues to regard 
       them as remaining within the same core-periphery sphere of
       influence formerly exerted by the Soviet Union within the 
       same geographic space. Russia misinterprets bids by these 
       countries to adopt liberalizing structural reforms and to 
       join Euro-Atlantic organizations as foreign-inspired and 
       inimical to Russia's security. Whether Russia can learn to
       recognize that such bids are in fact natural developments 
       of national self-interest will determine whether healthy 
       and mutually beneficial bilateral relations can develop 
       between Russia and the states of her near and far abroad 
       in the 21st century. No previous study of the dynamics of 
       post-Soviet assertive sovereignty has as broad a 
       geographic scope as Eurasia Rising, which considers the 
       whole of Post-Soviet Space: DT Belarus, Moldova, Ukraine 
       DT_ Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania DT Armenia, Azerbaijan, 
       Georgia DT Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, 
       Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan DT Albania, Bulgaria, Czech 
       Republic, Hungary, Poland, Romania, Slovakia
