Superpower illusions : how myths and false ideologies led America astray-- and how to return to reality by Jack F Matlock( Book )

12 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 1,121 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Former U.S. ambassador to the USSR Jack F. Matlock refutes the idea that the United States forced the collapse of the Soviet Union--with wide-ranging implications for U.S. foreign policy. Matlock argues that Gorbachev, not Reagan, undermined Communist Party rule in the Soviet Union, and that the Cold War ended in a negotiated settlement that benefited both sides. He posits that the end of the Cold War diminished American power; with the removal of the Soviet threat, allies were less willing to accept American protection and leadership that seemed increasingly to ignore their interests. Matlock shows how, during the Clinton and particularly the Bush-Cheney administrations, the belief that the United States had defeated the Soviet Union led to a conviction that it did not need allies, international organizations, or diplomacy, but could dominate the world by using its military power unilaterally. The result has compromised America's ability to lead."--Publisher's description
Russia's fate through Russian eyes : voices of the new generation( Book )

6 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 520 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Blowing the cobwebs from antiquated notions of Russia as an enigmatic nation doomed to tragic failure, twenty-eight articulate and entrepreneurial young Russian men and women--representatives of a new generation who came of age during and after the fall of the Soviet Union--record the hopes, fears, and triumphs of recent years. These trailblazers share stories of the very specific actions they and others like them have taken to move Russia toward a more civilized, responsible, and vibrant society. They describe their efforts to reshape the Russian state, cope with the new economic rules, strive toward a rule of law, build a civil society, and preserve Russian culture while modernizing its educational system. They paint a picture of a society borne up in its many travails by a stubborn will to survive and by a capacity to adapt ingeniously and swiftly to changes, both welcome and unwelcome.--Publisher description
