This collection of essays by Andrei analyzes Russian domestic and foreign policy from 2001-06, especially President Putin’s declaratory shift from solidarity with the U.S. after 9/11 (“Americans, we are with you”) to his comparison of America to “Comrade Wolf...[who]...knows whom to eat...and eats without listening.” The book argues that Russia and the West cannot remain divided in the face of serious joint challenges.
