About the product

The former USSR had long kept the movement of its citizens, particularly scientists, under tight control. This is no longer the case and now the drastic political and economic changes, the lack of opportunities, the powerful Russian Mafia and the growing need in certain developing countries to acquire nuclear weapons, constitute a very dangerous mix and a direct threat to international security. But can 'incurable instabilities' be transformed into 'controllable chaos'. This book highlights the the ways in which political, national security, economic and personal goals collide with each other in the rapid flow of events. It concludes by offering recommendations to improve the situation.
