Is a New Cold War Brewing?
Lifelong Learning Society Distinguished Professor of Current Affairs, 2005-2008
Recipient of the LLS 2002 Excellence in Teaching Award
EVENT DESCRIPTION: Once the core of the Soviet Union, the Russian Federation is the successor state of our Cold War nemesis. After a remarkable slide in the 1990s, Russia has roared back and seeks to reclaim its status as a leading state. Should we be concerned about a resurgent Russia? Are Russian and American interests in line with one another or are we on a trajectory for a renewal of the Cold War? What are the main policy options for dealing with Russia in the 21st century? In this special, one-time lecture, Professor Morton will analyze the relationship between the United States and Russia. Implications for American foreign policy makers will be considered.
