The New Chapter in United States-Russian Relations: Opportunities and Challenges


Granville, Johanna, Canadian Slavonic Papers


Sharyl Cross and Marina A. Oborotova, eds. The New Chapter in United States-Russian Relations: Opportunities and Challenges. Westport, CT: Praeger Publishers, 1994. xiv, 227 pp. Index. $57.50, cloth.

William Potter's "U.S.-Russian Cooperation for Non-Proliferation" discusses continuity and change in the efforts of Washington and Moscow to curtail the spread of nuclear weapons. Russian officials, like those of the U.S., recognize the urgency of this issue, but for them it is just one of several critical matters with which they grapple every day (p. 53). They also view the United States, which remains the largest arms exporter in the world, as hypocritical in its criticism of Russian arms sales to other countries (p.
