It is obvious that U.S.-Russian relations and East-West relations more broadly have recently deteriorated.Yet analyses of why this is the case have often been
conned to American policy. The author of this
monograph, Dr. Stephen Blank, seeks to analyze someof the key strategic issues at stake in this relationshipand trace that decline to Russian factors which havebeen overlooked or neglected. At the same time, he hasdevoted considerable time to recording some of theshortcomings of U.S. policy and recommending a wayout of the growing impasse confronting both sides.This analysis, originally presented at the annualStrategic Studies Institute (SSI) strategy conference of2007, was part of a panel that engaged the strategicchallenges confronting the United States from Russia.As such, it was part of the conference’s larger theme ofanalyzing regional strategic challenges to U.S. interestsand policy across the globe. As the conference pointedout, these challenges are many, diverse, and growingin number, if not intensity. Therefore the need forinformed and critical discussion of the issues raisedby these challenges, a constant mission of SSI, is evermore necessary. We offer this monograph to help meetthat need for our readers. DOUGLAS C. LOVELACE, JR.DirectorStrategic Studies Institute
