Project Summary

The project examines Brzezinski’s role in 1990s, particularly his role in Ukraine and his urging the Clinton Administration to expand the NATO alliance and to avoid neglecting the former Soviet republics. Brzezinski, perhaps more than any other Western strategist in the Cold War, was aware of the gravity of the Soviet nationality problem.
