Publisher: Brookings Institution Press
Book Condition: New
Book Type: Paperback
Paperback. 450 pages. Dimensions: 9.2in. x 6.0in. x 0.8in.Russia, once seen as Americas greatest adversary, is now viewed by the United States as a potential partner. This book traces the evolution of American foreign policy toward the Soviet Union, and later Russia, during the tumultuous and uncertain period following the end of the cold war. It examines how American policymakers particularly in the executive branch coped with the opportunities and challenges presented by the new Russia. Drawing on extensive interviews with senior U. S. and Russian officials, the authors explain George H. W. Bushs response to the dramatic coup of August 1991 and the Soviet breakup several months later, examine Bill Clintons efforts to assist Russias transformation and integration, and analyze George W. Bushs policy toward Russia as September 11 and the war in Iraq transformed international politics. Throughout, the book focuses on the benefits and perils of Americas efforts to promote democracy and markets in Russia as well as reorient Russia from security threat to security ally. Understanding how three U. S. administrations dealt with these critical policy questions is vital in assessing not only Americas Russia policy, but also efforts that might help to transform and integrate other former adversaries in the future.
