Kennan Long View Series | Not One Inch: America, Russia, and the Making of Post-Cold War Stalemate

Date & Time

Feb. 4, 2022
12:00pm – 1:00pm ET


This installment of The Long View will take up Professor Mary Sarotte’s remarkable and remarkably successful new book, Not One Inch. It will explore the many questions raised by this provocative and meticulously researched monograph. What diplomatic twists and turns went into the negotiations about NATO when the wall came down, in the 1990s and after Vladimir Putin came to power in 2000? Where did this take NATO? And how can the historical record help us to understand the motivations and policies of the United States, Russia and Europe at the present moment? Not One Inch is perfectly timed to inform the ongoing debate about U.S. policy toward Russia and Ukraine.
