The Hawks of Peace. Notes of the Russian Ambassador is a unique analytical edition where Russian Deputy Premier Dmitry Rogozin shares his notes on personalities and events that shaped the history of post-Communist Russia, believing that without those it would be impossible to understand the past and envisage the future of his country. Permanent Representative of Russia to NATO until recently, in his political diary Dmitry Rogozin contemplates on the complex relationship between Russia and the West. In his behind-the-scenes account, Rogozin opens up about certain mysteries of political stand-offs, military conflicts of the last two decades, terrorist acts and hostage situations.
From the year 1985 till this day – the collapse of the USSR, the tragedy of the year 1993 and wars in Caucasus, NATO aggression in Yugoslavia, the war with Georgia in 2008. The book contains unique documents about the Chechen War, for instance a letter from Shamil Basaev to President Putin, inside information from Brussels related to events in Georgia and many more records that have been hidden from the public eye in Russia and the West.
The Western reader now has a rare opportunity to look at Russian current affairs through the eyes of a Russian.
The book is addressed to politicians, historians, diplomats, experts and professional military men, as well as a wider audience.
Translated from the Russian by Nadezhda Serebryakova and Camilla Stein. Edited by Camilla Stein and Scott D. Moss.
Reseña de un libro: The Hawks of Peace (Los Halcones de la Paz) by Robert, euskalrus-vesta.org
"What you get in this relatively short book (350 pages) is a crash course on modern Russian history written from the “other side” and by that I don’t mean from the Russian side, I mean the Eurasian Sovereignist side, the side which is never ever represented in the western media. Frankly, we all owe a great debt of gratitude to Glagoslav publications for making this seminal text available in English." The Saker
Born in 1963, Dmitry Rogozin is a famous Russian politician, statesman and diplomat. Rogozin was the Russian Federation’s representative to NATO up to December 2011, and since then has been Russian Deputy Prime Minister.
Dmitry Rogozin began his professional career after graduating in Journalism from Moscow State University, having been first in his department’s history to present two final theses. At university he worked as trainee correspondent at both the Soviet Central Television and Radio Committee (Gosteleradio) and the mass media agency Novosti as a Latin American correspondent. After graduation, Rogozin joined the USSR’s Committee of Youth Organizations, where he soon became Head of International Organizations.
From 1993 Dmitry Rogozin actively defended the rights of Russian expatriates in the Commonwealth of the Independent States (CIS), the Baltic States and Yugoslavia, participating in the liberation of hostages in Chechnya, in the Moscow theatre hostage crisis of 2002 and in Beslan in 2004.
In 2008 President Vladimir Putin appointed Dmitry Rogozin as Permanent Representative to NATO in Brussels, and in 2009 promoted him to the diplomatic rank of Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary. In February 2011 Rogozin was appointed as Special Representative of the President of the Russian Federation to NATO on missile defence, and in December 2011 he assumed the position of Deputy Prime Minister in the Russian government.
Dmitry Rogozin is fluent in six foreign languages, four of which he mastered during his college years. Having earned his PhD, Rogozin has been working on science and technology policy, particularly on the evolution of threats to national security. Today, he is one of the leading specialists in development of political and technical terminology for the Russian military.
The Hawks of Peace. Notes of the Russian Ambassador was first published in Russian in 2010 to great public interest, immediately surpassing its print run of 20,000 copies.
