Reforming procedural law: aims, challenges, trends


Prikhodko I., Bondarenko А., Stolyarenko V.


Major reforms have been taking place in procedural law over the past few years. In October 2017 Russia’s Supreme Court prepared new, far-reaching legislative initiatives to amend the APC RF, CCP RF and APC RF, which have already been called a ‘procedural revolution’. What aims will the procedural reforms help to meet? How will the reforms affect litigants? What will litigants lose or gain as a result in access to legal protection, the predictability of the process and comfort therein? Is it always wise to aim to unify procedural law? How far can the process be simplified without losing the procedural form of judicial procedure? These and other questions are examined in the monograph. This work is aimed at judges, lawyers and specialists in procedural law. It may be of interest to university lecturers and students of law, and can be used as a study guide.

Memoirs of a counterspy. An inside view of conflict between the KGB and CIA, and not only…


Klimenko V.


The Cold War conflict between the KGB and CIA was always at the heart of society’s attention, but escalated in the 1980s into what is called by historians, a decade of espionage. The author gives quite a detailed explanation of the CIA’s ‘exploits’ during that period on the territory of our country: techniques used by Americans to recruit our compatriots and the CIA’s tactic of forming conspiratorial contacts with its agents. The author describes in chronological order most KGB operations (successful and unsuccessful) against the American special services from 1970–1990s.
Special attention is given to the operational game Phantom – a unique counterespionage operation carried out by the KGB with a high level of professionalism, according to CIA specialists, which served as inspiration for the 8-part television series “This is where Homeland begins”.
For the first time the reader is presented with both the inner world of the counterespionage unit, specializing in work on American diplomat-intelligence officers, and with the names of colleagues who laid the foundations of contemporary employee development methods in the CIA station in Moscow.

ed. by Prof. I. Vasilenko Smart cities in XXIst century: the potential and risks of smart technologies in city rebranding

Smart cities in XXIst century: the potential and risks of smart technologies in city rebranding


ed. by Prof. I. Vasilenko


This monograph puts forward the modern concept of a ‘smart city’ based on smart management, a smart human environment and smart technologies in city communication systems. Leading world practices on how to implement smart technologies in cities are examined, including those of Singapore, Vienna, Copenhagen, Dubai and Songdo. The dangers and risks involved in introducing intellectual technologies into social life are brought to the fore. These include cyber crime, the digital divide, the dehumanization of social space and a fall in society’s creativity levels with the onset of a technocratic existence.

The monograph develops the concept of promoting smart technologies in rebranding Russia’s cities by critically examining the experience of Moscow, Saint Petersburg, Novosibirsk and Kazan in this area. The authors are of the opinion that Russia’s ambitious aims for creating a digital economy depend largely on the successful formation of smart cities in Russia as centres of innovative creativity and development of human potential.

This monograph will be of interest to politicians and state actors, specialists in public relations and managers of all levels.

Areshidze L., Krupyanko M., Krupyanko I. The Japanese formula for success: 50 rules on how to achieve your goals. (Amazing Japan Series)

The Japanese formula for success: 50 rules on how to achieve your goals.


Areshidze L., Krupyanko M., Krupyanko I.

In many industrialized countries with a market economy, including contemporary Russia, ‘successful people’ are first and foremost those disposing of a standard set of commonly accepted attributes of success: an expensive car, expensive clothes, a large house. A successful European should definitely spend their holidays in world-famous resorts, work at a high level in a prestigious company, and so on.
However Japanese society views successful people through a different lens; those who reach the life goals that they have set for themselves, who are confident in themselves, their knowledge, abilities and actions, who have a well-paid and desirable job and who are constantly developing and perfecting themselves. Only these kinds of people hold a high status in Japanese society, have social recognition, are always in demand as individuals and respected in a team. In other words, in Japan the path to success is the ability to turn one’s dream into a meaningful goal and achieve it.
The monograph shows that in Japanese society life success in not necessarily solely connected to a successful career or financial status. It is also connected to having a family, children, being surrounded by loving family members and close ones, and spiritual wealth.

Turnout in Zurich. Secret no rules fighting in the Alps: versions, riddles, discrepancies

Kuznetsov V.

Switzerland has long since served as a fighting ring for intelligence services around the world – the United States, Israel, the Near East, France and other European states. Unexpected deaths and inexplicable events behind the scenes afford a landscape where the imagination can run rife. The death of a London-based Soviet specialist in his hotel bath in Switzerland is still a mystery to this day. And how did the “Dora” group, under legendary Soviet spy, Sándor Radó, manage to relay invaluable information about the Wehrmacht during the difficult days of war? The mysterious “Lucy” Rudolf Roessler, who blatantly infringed every rule and canon in the spy’s code of conduct, took that page of history away with his own passing. The archives are still tight-lipped about how the young Soviet intelligence service wanted to recruit Hitler, sending Churchill’s cousin, a beauty in London’s high society, to carry out the task. How? More about that in the book. And what about the comical incident when a Swiss technician burned newspapers instead of sketches, and sold the sketches of a French fighter plane to Israel? You can find out about this and much more in the investigation of Switzerland’s secret labyrinths, Somerset Maugham, an intelligence officer in revolutionary Petrograd, who swapped the role of cloak-and-dagger knight for the writer’s plume, Graham Greene, how the elusive Kim Philby became a double agent for Hitler’s counter-espionage and the FBI.

Entering the nuclear era. Nuclear diplomacy – from start to parity.

Malkov V.


Counting on nuclear weapons being banned in the distant future, Robert Oppenheimer, one of their creators, said that if they were to ever become a part of warring countries’ military arsenal, humanity would curse both the weapons and their creators. He was mistaken. It turned out that nuclear weapons could serve both as a means of attack and protection. Unfolding the dramatic landscape of hidden rivalry between two leading powers in the anti-Hitler coalition during the Second World War and the new global configuration after Hiroshima, the author takes us, step by step, back to the roots of the nuclear arms race. He examines the gigantic, top secret programme in which the US aimed at being the first to create a weapon of mass destruction to attain world domination. The book also shows another side to the multi-layered process, embodied in the efforts of Soviet science and diplomacy during testing times so as not to give the American project global military and technological supremacy and to ensure the way towards parity.

Okulov V.  Paris and Geneva through the eyes of an intelligence officer

Paris and Geneva through the eyes of an intelligence officer

Okulov V.

Paris – the capital of France, and Geneva – the capital of UN offices in Europe and many other international organizations, were always under the unwavering attention of intelligence services from different countries. The large number of foreigners and top secrets in diplomatic safes and other delegations in these cities, the traditional welcoming approach to foreigners and quite a liberal mode of life and communication sometimes made it easier for the ‘soldiers of the invisible front’ to fulfill their tasks. This is what the memoirs of a Soviet foreign intelligence veteran, a high-class professional and colonel in retirement are about.
Yet an intelligence officer’s work is not only limited to collecting information required by Headquarters. He works in a specific country, in a specific city. That in itself spells constant contact with Headquarters, covering this up with neutral connections, with famous people or their entourage, interesting meetings and contacts. The author’s observant gaze will allow the reader to get acquainted with some moments in the life of the Russian diaspora, and to immerse themselves in the daily activities of the intelligence officer abroad.

Plekhanov S. With fairness and nobleness. The Sultan of Brunei Hassanal Bolkiah.

With fairness and nobleness. The Sultan of Brunei Hassanal Bolkiah.

Plekhanov S.

The state of Brunei became a subject of international law relatively recently. On 1st of 1984 spelled the countdown to its independent existence after holding the status of Protectorate of Great Britain for almost a century. Hassanal Bolkiah has ruled continuously over all these years. The fame of his country in the modern world is directly linked to this state actor’s personality. Today, the ‘Sultan of Brunei’ sounds like a metaphor for riches and flourishing. And it really is so; the small nation constantly ranks high in world ratings for living standards and is a leader in government social expenditure. But it was not always like this; the nation had to overcome its underdevelopment.
The author shows that the road to independence and a high level of prosperity was thorny. The small state of Brunei found itself in the epicentre of combating superpowers during the Second World War. What had been destroyed during the war had to be restored and even more problems arose with the need to catch up with neighbouring countries. Once a rich and mighty nation, having lost its independence and expertise in state leadership in the mid XX century, Brunei’s existence was balancing on a knife-edge during the decolonialization process. Hassanal Bolkiah who was called the Crown Prince in his youth, soon came to the throne of Brunei and demonstrated consistency and firmness in asserting the seedlings of statehood that he had inherited from his predecessors. Having become the 29th representative of a dynasty in rule since XIV century, he breathed new life into the ancient institutions of power while keeping in line with the traditions bequeathed to him by his ancestors. He was able to create a modern, effective administrative apparatus and make fundamental social reforms.
Today the monarch, in power for already half a century, has set large aims for small Brunei: a highly-educated nation based on a knowledge economy, making sensible use of rich natural resources in harmony with environmental safety and founded on the comprehensive development of enterprises. This is what the sultan sees as the future for his country. He has already created the bedrock which gives us hope that future generations will also make sure that Brunei thrives and protect its authenticity despite the temptations of globalization.

Lezgintsev Yu. Comrades and adversaries : historical and biographical outlines of the era of Spanish colonies’ struggle for independence in South America.

Comrades and adversaries : historical and biographical outlines of the era of Spanish colonies’ struggle for independence in South America.
Lezgintsev Yu.

This book constitutes a logical continuation of the first two tomes titled ‘Generals of Freedom’, which describe the life and work of eminent leaders in the struggle to free South America from the colonial yoke: Jose Francisco de San Martina and Simon Bolivar. The period in which these figures showed their mettle, as goes for any revolutionary period, was extremely complex and contradictory, therefore a portrayal of their achievements without describing the activities of historical characters living during their time, would clearly not give the complete picture. Even the most distinguished of characters could not overturn the full legacy of three hundred years of Spanish rule single-handed, bringing about vitally important changes for the Creole nation, in particular, winning political and economic independence.

Karash Yu. People on the cosmic bridge.

People on the cosmic bridge
Karash Yu.
Space has long been a part of our lives. It is pictured in many films and TV broadcasts, and is often even the subject of heated political arguments, not to say science fiction. Yet sometimes real events beyond the atmosphere are capable of capturing the imagination more effectively than the most complex of fantasy plots. That’s why non-fiction literature about space is read with no less interest that the works of Arthur Clarke, Stanislav Lem or the Strugatsky brothers. This book is part of that category. An adventure book and witness… It is based on the memories of those who participated in the Shuttle-Mir program; on numerous interviews with astronauts, engineers, and other specialists from Russia and the US who worked on the joined space project. Yury Karash’s rich personal experience is also drawn on. He underwent training in the Johnson Space Centre.  

Yury Karash’s book is not only about space, but also about US astronauts’ and Russian cosmonaut’s collaboration in space exploration. It embodies the author’s dream – to see space not as a competition field but as an opportunity for collaboration between terrestrials regardless of their nationality or passport. Unfortunately the author won’t see his dream with his own eyes, or his published book. Shortly after he submitted his manuscript to the publisher, he died. Death crept up on him – a strong, energetic man full of plans – when Yury Karash was on another business trip in the US, in a science space center.

This book is for anyone interested in a space odyssey full of unbelievable adventures.

Аreshidze L., Krupyanko M., Krupyanko I.A guide to Japanese etiquette: useful information for foreigners about codes of conduct in Japan  (Amazing Japan Series)

A guide to Japanese etiquette: useful information for foreigners about codes of conduct in Japan  (Amazing Japan Series)

Аreshidze L., Krupyanko M., Krupyanko I.


When preparing for a journey to Japan, Europeans often end up worrying about finding themselves in a foreign civilization where the inhabitants’ social codes are very different to those of many other nations. It’s hard to deny this. As an island state, Japan developed for centuries according to its own particular laws and standards of conduct. Despite partially adopting some cultural elements from China, Japan has always maintained its unique identity, which makes it stand out from other nations and makes its etiquette one of a kind.
The authors of this monograph have tried as much as possible to make the whole process easier for foreigners preparing to go to Japan. The book outlines the main points of Japanese etiquette in a variety of life situations, which will help Europeans not to feel like outcasts in Japanese society, make their stay in Japan more pleasant and give them more confidence when interacting with the Japanese. The authors hope that the guide to Japanese etiquette will help Russian readers to find answers to many questions, which will undoubtedly arise during a foreigner’s stay in Japan and in communicating with Japanese people.

Happiness the Japanese way: advice on how to make a person’s life brighter and more joyful

Areshidze L., Krupyanko М., Krupyanko I.


The authors of this monograph have attempted to generalize the Japanese’s understanding of human happiness and reveal secrets on how to attain it to Russian readers.
When conceptualizing the components of happiness many generations of Japanese people have referred to the wise ancient Greek saying: “Happy is the one whose life is filled with the joys of spiritual being and developed self-awareness, not with material goods.” That is why on the one hand, many Japanese people today believe that human happiness of difficult to attain by chasing after material wealth, and on the other hand, that it can be easily found through spiritual joys. The Japanese have been familiarized from an early age with the concept that they will spend half their lives at work where they should learn to find their chance to make their lives happy. A successful Japanese person knows that he/she needs to solve the three following tasks to attain happiness: gain the necessary levels of knowledge for self-realization in life; become a professional in their sphere of work; build themselves up as a person of high morals, honour and dignity. In overcoming life’s difficulties a Japanese person perfects himself/herself with each passing day. He works on himself, expands his knowledge and gains life experience. She reads new books, goes to the theatre and to exhibitions. Yet he does not forget the simple truth which fairly asserts that, “a healthy body houses a healthy spirit”. In other words, a balanced Japanese person aiming for happiness doesn’t forget about sport which will not only allow her to strengthen her health but also to expand her contact with the outside world. It is this kind of life that stimulates the Japanese to self-improvement in harmony, enables them to acquire the necessary set of human merits, and directs them towards a life of fully-fledged happiness.
The book is aimed at a wide circle of readers and possibly, first and foremost, at the young generation who at the start of their life will be thinking about how to live it in happiness.

“Warsaw melody” for Moscow and Prague: documents from I.V. Stalin’s personal archives, Foreign Intelligence Services of the Russian Federation, II Division of the Polish Army’s Main Headquarters and others (1933–1939)

Мorozov S.

The first part of the book is made up of documents of Stalin’s so-called ‘personal archives’ – reports of Soviet intelligence revealing the secret intentions of Germany, Poland and Japan to take aggressive measures against the USSR roughly in the second half of 1935. The second and third parts of the book illustrate the secret motives of the ‘small war’ i.e. the mechanism allowing the then political authorities of Poland to form a reason for war with neighbouring countries including the Soviet Union and Czechoslovakia. The appendix contains documents revealing the results of this policy including for representatives of the Polish nation, displaced from western borders to the depths of the USSR in the mid 1930s. The book is a result of the so-called ‘1990s archive revolution’ when after the fall of the Soviet Union historians were given access to some of the previously closed archives with one of them being the MIA Special Archive of the USSR which contained, amongst others, the documents of II Division of the Polish Army’s Main Headquarters (espionage and counterespionage) of 1930s.

This book will be of interest to state actors, politicians, diplomats and can be used as a chrestomathy by university students in their final years.

Tyshetsky I. The last Whig, or the English chronicles of Sir Edward Grey

The last Whig, or the English chronicles of Sir Edward Grey

Tyshetsky I.

This book is dedicated to the life of Edward Grey – English politician and diplomat from the beginning of the 20th century. This is the first book about Edward Grey published in Russian. Edward Grey’s biography is described within the wide context of Britain’s general history and her foreign policy in the last quarter of the 19th and the first quarter of the 20th centuries. The protagonist’s life almost completely fits into this period – from the British Empire’s heyday to the start of its downturn. It also encompasses when Britain’s’ liberal party, with Edward Grey being one of its most prominent representatives, made its short but intensive journey from having a lead role in British politics to its decline. The book is also interesting because Edward Grey’s eleven years at the head of the Foreign Office have remained the only bright period in the long history of Anglo-Russian relations when truly good-hearted and friendly relations were formed between the two countries. Something like this was never before seen in England and Russia’s history, nor has it been seen again since Grey left politics.

The book is aimed at professional historians and all those interested in England’s history and in international relations.
