Surviving the Millennium
Surviving the Millennium traces the rise of the U.S.-Soviet antagonism from its roots in the U.S.-tsarist Russian relationship and critically reexamines U.S. containment strategy during the Cold War. The book then focuses on the new U.S. and Russian interrelationship with Germany, Japan, China, the European Community, and other key actors such as Iran, Turkey, India, the Koreas, and Ukraine. Despite the end of the Cold War, Gardner contends that U.S.-Russian relations are still characterized by games of encirclement and counter-encirclement; that the two powers have yet to move beyond detente and forge a full-fledged entente.
