This book demonstrates that Russia intends to reemerge as a full-ﬂedged superpower before 2010, challenging America and China and potentially threatening a new arms race. Contrary to conventional wisdom, this goal is easily within the Kremlin’s grasp, but the cost to the Russian people and global security would be immense. A sophisticated strategy is proposed to dissuade President Vladimir Putin from pursuing this destabilizing course.
The book also explains why the Soviet Union imploded, why Western experts missed the signs of the collapse, and how Russia has metamorphosed into an authoritarian regime instead of pursuing a transition to fully democratic free enterprise. It demonstrates that the Soviet Union was “structurally militarized” and that Russia’s military-industrial complex is intact. The Cold War image of the Soviet Union as a westernizing, mass consumption society committed to “peaceful coexistence” is exposed as a statistical illusion. A critique of American foreign policy making is also provided that emphasizes the confusion caused by tampering with evidence to conform with public expectations and the damage to the national interest caused by attempting to satisfy a consensus of particular special interests.
