Russia and Arms Control: Are There Opportunities for the Obama Administration?

Carlisle, PA: Strategic Studies Institute U. S. Army War College, 2009. Presumed first edition/first printing. Wraps. xii, 173, [3] p. Endnotes. As of September 2008, the Bush administration was contemplating not just a break in arms talks but actual sanctions, and allowed the bilateral civil nuclear treaty with Russia to die in the Senate rather than go forward for confirmation. Russian spokesmen make clear their belief that American concessions on key elements of arms control issues like missile defenses in Europe are a touchstone for the relationship and a condition of any further progress towards genuine dialogue. Dr. Stephen J. Blank has served as the Strategic Studies Institute s expert on the Soviet bloc and the post-Soviet world since 1989. He has written many articles and conference papers on Russia, the Commonwealth of Independent States, and Eastern European security issues. Dr. Blank s current research deals with proliferation and the revolution in military affairs, and energy and security in Eurasia. Condition: Very good. No dust jacket. Cover has slight wear and soiling.
