New Cold War: Putin's Russia and the Threat To the West (08 Edition)by Edward Lucas
Synopses & ReviewsPlease note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the 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.
