Responding to a Resurgent Russia: Russian Policy and Responses from the European Union and the United States, New York: Springer, 2011
Yet, it is obvious that Russia will continue to be a crucial partner for both the EU and US, if important economic and security goals are to be accomplished. We proceed by discussing the tensions between Russia and the current system of international institutions before turning to an examination of Russian relations with the European Union and with the United States, respectively. We then turn to Russian options for international partnerships, including a discussion of its relations with other emerging market economies. In concluding, we identify major themes in Russian relations with the Western-led international order, focusing on the degree to which the EU and the US have pursued a coherent transatlantic policy toward Russia.
