About this title:

Synopsis: Examining the shifts in Russian foreign policy and their potential impact on the status and influence of the United States in the international system, this outstanding volume examines why the Kremlin initially sought an alliance with the United States and the internal and external reasons why such a policy was unsustainable. In particular, it looks for an explanation for the post-Cold War vacillations in Russian foreign policy. Russia made several decisions which were perceived domestically as being unacceptable capitulations to American interests. Consequently, a pro-Western foreign policy became incompatible with Russian political culture. The rapprochement following 9/11 was destined to be temporary due to the decision by the Bush administration to invade Iraq. Contributing to the fields of international relations and comparative foreign policy, this study provides a fresh approach to the balance/bandwagon issue and takes into account the global repercussions of the recent war in Iraq. It will be of particular value to specialists in Russian foreign policy, international relations theory, and US foreign policy.

Review: '...an authoritative study of Russian foreign policy, and above all American-Russian relations, since the disintegration of the USSR...well organized, carefully researched and well written, integrating area study and international relations theory in ways that are instructive for both approaches. The book is full of sound judgments and sophisticated analysis and is moreover sensitive to indeterminacy in international relations and foreign policy without abandonment to purely ad hoc analysis.' Allen Lynch, University of Virginia, USA 'Thomas Ambrosio succinctly analyses and surveys the multi-faceted difficulties Russia has encountered, and continues to face, in forging a coherent security policy since the disintegration of the USSR. He reveals the fundamental dilemma facing Russia since the disintegration of the USSR where Russian elites cannot imagine Russia as anything other than a "great power" while being a power in decline. The book's great value is [its exploration of] the manner in which this dilemma running through Russian security policy attempts to grapple with America as the world's hyperpower.' Taras Kuzio, George Washington University, USA 'One strength of this richly documented book is its frequent use of policy-makers' quotes to make its point...this book is a valuable addition to the literature of International Relations - a very worthwhile read.' International Affairs
