Winner of the 2014 Douglas Dillon Award, American Academy of Diplomacy One of Bloomberg Businessweek's Best Books of 2014, chosen by Dan Fuss "In her largely chronological account of U.S.-Russian relations since 1990, Ms. Stent gives a comprehensive overview of the obstacles that have prevented a closer relationship."--Yascha Mount, Wall Street Journal "[L]ucid... [R]eadable and sometimes surprising."--Kirkus Reviews "[M]agisterial."--The Economist "[Stent's] compelling book provides perhaps the most comprehensive and sober--as well as sobering--assessment of relations across the past two decades."--Neil Buckley, Financial Times "Stent ... expertly condenses the past two decades of this tumultuous relationship with an insider's command of detail."--Elizabeth Cobbs Hoffman, Times Higher Education "In The Limits of Partnership, Stent ... clearly and carefully lays out the contentious issues that have divided the United States and Russia since the end of the Cold War."--Glenn C. Altschuler, Huffington Post "Until now, there have been no broad-based studies of the vexed contemporary U.S.-Russian relationship in English--or, for that matter, in Russian. This volume fills that void admirably."--Foreign Affairs "Truly outstanding."--Mark Adomanis, Forbes.com "[An] insightful and balanced assessment of two decades of post-Soviet interaction between Washington and Moscow... Stent draws many useful lessons from the ups-and-downs in the U.S.-Russian relationship."--Paul J. Saunders, National Interest "In her magisterial new book The Limits of Partnership, Angela Stent performs a great service by showing that the end of the Obama Reset is only one part of a much broader pattern that goes back to the end of the Soviet Union."--Donald N. Jensen, Institute of Modern Russia "Where Stent's narrative truly excels ... is in presenting the Russian side of the story. It does not fall victim to the understandable temptation to mock Yeltsin or Putin, but rather treats Russia as a U.S. partner with legitimate grievances. This is a particularly worthwhile contribution."--Heather Williams, War Studies Publications "The Limits of Partnership is a comprehensive and objective history and analysis. While dealing with the detailed complexity of the many issues involved, it does so in a clear, straightforward style. Although written before the present Ukrainian crisis, it is an indispensable source for understanding why this crisis has worsened our relationship with Russia."--Walter G. Moss, History News Network "A descriptive and integrative type of work, The Limits of Partnership contributes to a renewed understanding of the legacy of the Cold war, of the cultural mechanisms underlying its practices, the ebb and flow, the meanderings and limitations of ideology, viewed in transnational perspective. Stent's is without doubt a particularly apt and timely undertaking, one whose pertinence is fully probed by the crisis in Ukraine that sparked a proliferation of discourse on the 'new Cold War.' This is certainly a cogent political analysis of the postcommunist architecture in Europe as it profiles itself at this juncture in the twenty-first century."--Adriana Neagu, American, British and Canadian Studies "This is a remarkably even-handed account, in the best kind of way; it explains how each side has understood the serial breakdowns, and explains how the misperceptions on either side have allowed them to happen."--Robert Farley, Lawyers, Guns, & Money blog "Stent, former staffer at the National Intelligence Council and Department of State, has written a masterful analysis of US-Russian relations since the breakup of the Soviet Union... Written in a lively, engaging manner that is free of academic jargon, the book is accessible to readers from a variety of disciplines and academic levels... This book provides a complete and definitive rendering of the key events that have taken place in that relationship and deserves to be widely read."-- Choice "[A] highly readable account of US foreign policy during the twenty-five years since the Berlin Wall came down, with respect not just to Russia, but the Eurasian continent generally."--David Warsh, Economic Principals

Very objective and a thorough and eye-opening read. I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in learning about US and Russian relationships from the 90s through December 2014.

Partnership Ends Where Conflicts of Interest Arise 21. März 2014
Von Leonard J. Wilson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
The Limits of Partnership by Angela Stent describes the history of US-Russian relations from the demise of the USSR in 1991 to the present. It provides a useful sequel, with a bit of overlap, to Jack Matlock’s Autopsy on an Empire which covers US-Soviet relations from 1985 to 1992.

I was fortunate to have read The Limits of Partnership just before the Ukrainian situation heated up in late February 2014. Dr Stent describes US-Russian relations as having undergone four "resets", none of which worked for very long:

1. 1992: GHW Bush attempts to adjust to the demise of the USSR and to Boris Yeltsin’s leadership of Russia but is voted out of office before making much progress.

2. 1993: Clinton tries to team up with Yeltsin. Yeltsin's erratic policy changes and declining health doom this effort.

3. 2001: Putin calls GW Bush immediately after 9/11 and offers his support. Putin seeks to make Russia an equal partner with the US, but ends up feeling that his offer was not taken seriously.

4. 2009: Obama seeks another reset in the aftermath of Russia's war with Georgia.

From a Russian perspective, the most significant aspect of US-Russian relations has been the expansion of NATO. Since the demise of the Soviet Union, NATO's eastern border has moved ever closer to Moscow. Following the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989, the Soviet Union and Russia had the strong impression (promise may be too strong a word) that NATO would not expand eastward.

1. Having just escaped from Soviet control, the Poles, Czechs, and other former members of the Warsaw Pact desperately wanted US assurance that they would not be re-occupied by Russia. NATO membership was really the only tangible way of providing that assurance.

2. Next came NATO membership for the three Baltic states, all former Soviet Republics. Here again, membership could be justified since the US had always refused to recognize the Soviet occupation of these countries in 1939 under the Ribbentrop-Molotov Non-Aggression Treaty.

3. Finally, the US supported the color revolutions in Georgia and Ukraine, and spoke encouragingly of NATO membership for these historically Russian-controlled areas. Russia has pushed back with its war with Georgia and occupation of Crimea.

My point in describing NATO’s progressive expansion is to demonstrate that there are profound geopolitical conflicts between the national interests of Russia and the US. Partnership can go only as far as a congruence of national interests allows. Beyond that point, diplomacy, conflict management, and compromise must come into play.

Review of"The Limits of Partnership" 15. März 2014
Von Michael E Miller - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Since the Olympics I have read two books on Vladimir Putin."The Man Without a Face" I suspect was biased but it might be accurate. . "Vladimir Putin and Russian Statecraft" seemed to me to provide a more balanced approach. "The Limits of Partnership: US-Russia Relations in the Twenty-First Century". I found the book to present a detailed explanation of the US-Russia relations from the fall of the Soviet Union through the two Bush administrations, the Clinton administration, and the Obama administration. The book is fairly current, I believe released in 2013. This is an excellent book on the subject.

Concise and enlightening history gives current perspective. 13. April 2014
Von Randy Carlson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
This Book was selected for a current perspective of factors influencing US - Russian relations. There are good summaries of discussions, disagreements and a few areas of common concerns. This is good for anyone who seeks a more complete understanding of Putan and some ideas how to approach him. Teachers would appreciate the background for themselves and their students for greater depth than they usually have in
World Studies courses.

excellent book 17. Juni 2014
Von X - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Excellent book on the potential of US-Russian relations. Stent does an amazing job in outlining the understanding behind an often misunderstood complexity of a post-Soviet Russia.
