Summary "Petrostate chronicles Russia's dramatic reemergence on the world stage, illuminating the key reason for its rebirth: the use of its ever-expanding energy wealth to reclaim its traditional status as a great power. Marshall I. Goldman traces how this has come to be and how Russia is using its oil-based power as a lever in world politics."--BOOK JACKET.
