The New Cold War: How the Kremlin Menaces Both Russia and the West

by Edward Lucas
£8.99   paperback  Bloomsbury Publishing PLC (2009)

The New Cold War: How the Kremlin Menaces Both Russia and the West by Edward Lucas The first book to explain how the Kremlin’s increasingly authoritarian and aggressive stance threatens Europe, America and the world.
 
With a preface by Norman Davies, author of Europe: A History.
 
Revised and updated following Russia's attack on Georgia.
 
No longer the sick man of Europe, Russia is run by an authoritarian ex-KGB regime with the cash to put its ideas into practice. Under Vladimir Putin’s autocratic rule, it silences its critics and bullies its neighbours. The murders of Anna Politkovskaya and Aleksander Litvinenko have sent a grim warning to other critics and the sham presidential ‘election’ in 2007 that put Dmitry Medvedev in the Kremlin as Putin’s hand-picked successor showed how Russia’s rulers, not the voters, dictate the country’s political future.
 
The New Cold War explains the Kremlin’s use of energy blockades and trade sanctions, military sabre-rattling and propaganda wars against its neighbours – and why a divided and demoralised West is responding so feebly. It is an incisive and disturbing account of why we are perilously close to defeat – and how we can still win.
