|Title:||Still the “pivot”: Russia’s self-conception and view of the euro crisis as perceived in public opinion and the Rossiiskaya Gazeta, 2011-12||Authors:||Turner, Barnard||Keywords:||DRNTU::Social sciences||Issue Date:||2012||Source:||Turner, B. (2012). Still the “pivot”: Russia’s self-conception and view of the euro crisis as perceived in public opinion and the Rossiiskaya Gazeta, 2011-12 (EUC Working Paper, No. 8). Singapore: EU Centre.||Series/Report no.:||EUC working paper, No. 8-12||Abstract:||In his influential and disputed 1904 lecture, “The Geographical Pivot of History,” Halford Mackinder argued that the Russian heartland was the fulcrum of many historical and geostrategic currents across Eurasian space. While the thesis has been thought surpassed by recent technological advances in transportation, it serves as a useful heuristic device to open certain thematic lines of analysis apparent in the presentation of the ongoing “EUrocrisis” by the country’s newspaper of record, the Rossiiskaya Gazeta.||URI:||https://hdl.handle.net/10356/103871
