Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The first edition of The New Cold War was published to great critical acclaim and Edward Lucas has established himself as a top expert in the field, appearing on numerous programs, including Lou Dobbs, MSNBC, NBC Nightly News, CNN, and NPR.

In this new revised and updated edition, Lucas reveals: 

-The truth about the corrupt elections that made Dmitri Medvedev President of Russia

-How, as prime minister, Vladimir Putin remains the de facto leader of Russia

-The Kremlin's real goals in waging war in Georgia;

-How the conflict might soon spill into other former Soviet republics.

Hard-hitting and powerful, The New Cold War is a sobering look at Russia's current aggression and what it means for the world.

About the Author
