Russophobia: Anti-Russian Lobby and American Foreign Policy (Palgrave Macmillan, 2009)


The book argues that much of the United States’ policy toward Russia is shaped by an ambition to remain the only world’s superpower and by activities of various interest groups with the agenda of isolating Russia from the Western world. Although these groups did not dictate the official policy line, their influence on policy making has been notable. The book documents how the anti-Russian lobby contributed to getting the promising post-9/11 US-Russia partnership off track. It also formulates a different approach to Russia in the post-Cold War world based on constructive engagement and interest-based collaboration.
