About the Authors
  • This book demonstrates that Russia intends to re-emerge as a full-fledged superpower before 2010--challenging America and China and potentially threatening a new arms race. Contrary to conventional wisdom, this goal would appear to be easily within the Kremlin's grasp, but the cost to the Russian people and global security would be immense. Hence, Steven Rosefielde proposes a sophisticated strategy to dissuade President Vladimir Putin from pursuing the destabilizing course. His analysis conflicts with the post-cold-war image of the Soviet Union as a westernizing, mass consumption society committed to "peaceful coexistence."

    • Up-to-date study of the economic and political future of Russia under Vladimir Putin
    • Author is world-renowned Russia specialist
    • Written in an extremely engaging, colorful and provocative style

    "Rosefielde's lively polemic argues that Western specialists have consistently misunderstood Soviet and Russian political economy." CHOICE

    "Rosefield argues powerfully that an alternative to the path that has led Russia to this impasse existed at the outset of the post-Soviet period" Slavic Review Allen C. Lynch, University of Virginia
