Relations between Russia and the West are at their lowest ebb since the Cold War. “What to do about Russia” is a matter of daily debates among Europeans and Americans.

This volume fills this gap by featuring authors from Russia, as well as non-Russian experts on Russia, who present Russian views on relations with Western countries.
