BeschreibungThis book demonstrates Russias intention to re-emerge as a full-fledged superpower before 2010 that would challenge America and China and potentially threaten a new arms race. Contrary to conventional wisdom, this goal is easily within the Kremlins grasp, but the cost to the Russian people and global security would be immense. A sophisticated strategy is proposed to dissuade President Vladimir Putin from pursuing this destabilizing course. The cold war image of the Soviet Union is exposed as a statistical illusion. A critique of American foreign policymaking is also provided.
