Synopsis: Central and East European Studies Series, 1 (International Studies Library, 32) Over the past two decades Russia's relations with Europe and the West, in general, have deteriorated, as Russia rebuilt its international political and economic foundations and its leaders decided to pursue a policy of reestablishing Russia as the major regional actor and as an important global power. The chapters that comprise the volume examine the factors that drive Russian foreign policy, including those that divide Europe from Russia. They then examine the specifics of Russian relations with the European Union and NATO and the impact of U.S.-Russian relations on the Russian-European relationship. They conclud with an examination of President Medvedev's proposal for a new Eurasian security architecture. The overall message of the analysis is that the longer-term prospects for Russian relations with the West are limited, because of the deep divisions between the two sides.
