Book description

In this book Richard Sakwa provides a new analysis of the end of the Cold War and the subsequent failure to create a comprehensive and inclusive peace order in Europe. The end of the Cold War did not create a sustainable peace system. Instead, for a quarter of a century a 'cold peace' reflected the tension between cooperative and competitive behaviour. None of the fundamental problems of European security were resolved, and tensions accumulated. In 2014 the crisis exploded in the form of conflict in Ukraine, provoking what some call a 'new Cold War'. Russia against the Rest challenges the view that this is a replay of the old conflict, explaining how the tensions between Russia and the Atlantic community reflect a global realignment of the international system. Sakwa provides a balanced and carefully researched analysis of the trajectory of European and global politics since the late 1980s.


‘A leading authority on Russia and Europe, Richard Sakwa articulates the much needed pluralist perspective on their relations to replace the outdated Atlantic outlook.'

Andrei P. Tsygankov - San Francisco State University

‘In this theoretically sophisticated and empirically rich analysis, Richard Sakwa both explains the course of development of Russia-West relations after the end of the cold war and points to what could be done to escape the dead end into which we have blundered. If you are going to read only one book on post-cold war international politics, read this superb study.'

Graeme Gill - University of Sydney
