"This book draws on extensive ethnographic research undertaken in Russia to show how the wider sociopolitical context - the political system, relationship between the state and academia as well as the contours of the public debate - shapes knowledge about international politics and influences scholars' engagement with the policy world. Combining an in-depth study of the International Relations discipline in Russia as well as a robust methodological framework, the book demonstrates that context not only bears on epistemic and disciplinary practices but also conditions scholars' engagement with the wider public and policymakers. This original study lends robust sociological foundations to the debate about knowledge in the social sciences. In particular, the book questions contemporary thinking about the relationship between knowledge and politics by situating the university within, rather than abstracting it from the political setting. The book benefits from a comprehensive engagement with Russian-language literature in the Sociology of knowledge and critical reading of International Relations scholarship published in Russia. This text will be of interest to scholars and students in International Relations, Russian and Post-Soviet Studies, the Sociology of Knowledge, Science and Technology Studies and Higher Education Studies. It will appeal in particular to those researching the knowledge-policy nexus and knowledge production practices".
