Russia under Vladimir Putin sought to reestablish itself as a major power on the international stage; Dmitri Medvedev's succession as president promises a similar agenda. Going forward, how the United States and Russia deal with each other and with issues of mutual interest will have a great impact around the globe. "Russia The Balance Sheet" sets forth a primer on Russia's current governmental and political infrastructure as well as its opportunity for growth.This important new book provides comprehensive, balanced, and accurate information on all key aspects of Russia and discusses what its status means for the US and other nations. To that end, the authors develop a cohesive, overarching framework that analyzes the nexus point of such areas as economic reforms and integration, domestic politics and society, foreign business partnerships, and energy demands. Based upon this foundation, the book capably suggests constructive policies for Russia and the next US administration that will take office in 2009.About the Author:
Anders Aslund, known for repeatedly challenging conventional wisdom on "transition economies," is a leading specialist on postcommunist economic transformation with more than 30 years of experience in the field. He boldly predicted the fall of the Soviet Union in his Gorbachev's Struggle for Economic Reform (1989). In Building Capitalism: The Transformation of the Former Soviet Bloc (2002) he firmly stated that the only choice Russia had was market reform. He is also the author of Russia's Capitalist Revolution (2007). Dr. Aslund joined the Peterson Institute for International Economics as senior fellow in January 2006. He has worked as an economic adviser to the Russian government (1991-94), to the Ukrainian government, and to the president of the Kyrgyz Republic. Andrew Kuchins is a senior fellow and director of the CSIS Russia and Eurasia Program. From 2000 to 2006, he was a senior associate at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, where he was director of its Russian and Eurasian Program in Washington, D.C., from 2000 to 2003 and again in 2006, and director of the Carnegie Moscow Center in Russia from 2003 to 2005. Kuchins conducts research and writes widely on Russian foreign and security policy. He is the coeditor of Russia: The Next Ten Years (Carnegie, 2004).
