Russia: Strategy, Policy, and Administration

Why are relations between Russia and the U.S. today growing in tension and what is their trajectory? For all the preoccupation with Russia today in America, there remains insufficient understanding of Russia's dynamics, pressures, and motives. Irvin Studin and Jon Finer will use Studin's groundbreaking new book as a jumping-off point for a discussion of the world's largest and most complicated country, in all its strategic, policy, and administrative dimensions, reflecting on potential exits from the present US-Russia tension.
