About this book

This book explores the history of the nuclear nonproliferation dialogue between Russia (USSR) and the United States. By looking into the particulars of bilateral cooperation on NPT, Cooperative Threat Reduction program, arms control, and other issues, the authors offer lessons to be learned in preventing nuclear confrontations in the future. The book has been prepared in coordination between Russian and American scholars and experts and is a result of a series of Track 2.5 events devoted to restoring the nonproliferation cooperation between Russia and the United States. Covering all the aspects of the bilateral partnership since 1960 until today, this book will interest scholars of great power conflicts and nonproliferation.

The workshop and the consequent work on the monograph became possible thanks to generous organizational & financial support from Centre russe d`etudes politiques (Geneva) and the Center for Policy Studies in Russia (Monterey, USA).

Reviews

PIR Center's collective monograph is an example of a deep, thoughtful study of the evolution of cooperation between Russia and the United States in this area. I am confident that this work will make a worthy contribution to the development of Russian approaches to combatting modern challenges and threats to nonproliferation.

Anatoly Antonov, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Russian Federation to the United States of America

We regard the monograph as an invitation to continue a substantive conversation on the entire set of nonproliferation problems. It is not only Moscow and Washington, but also other members of the international community that are interested in solving these problems. This multi-page work reflects the growing concern on both sides of the ocean, including in Russia, vis-à-vis the current state of the international legal architecture in the field of nonproliferation and the prospects for multilateral cooperation in this sensitive area.

Sergey Ryabkov, Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation

I am so happy to see this volume devoted to Roland Timerbaev, one of the most eminent Russian diplomats of the 20th century. It is a fitting tribute, drawing as it does on the talents both of young researchers and of highly experienced senior negotiators. This combination of fresh perception and established wisdom makes this volume an important tool for analysts and practitioners of nonproliferation policy.

Rose Gottemoeller, former Undersecretary of State for International Security

The authors managed to delve into the details of the interaction between Moscow and Washington in a surprisingly dynamic and easy-to-grasp way, and at the same time rise above the specifics of the topic and draw conclusions that will be relevant for other areas requiring joint work of the two countries.

Elena Chernenko, special correspondent, Kommersant

Not only does the book have all the chances – it should! – become a livre de poche for diplomats and military people involved in preparing and making decisions on arms control and nonproliferation. Not only because the authors went through the five-decades-long history of our interaction with the United States, but because the authors distill the lessons to be learned from this history.

Anatoly Torkunov, Rector, MGIMO-University

A thoughtful, unbiased reader will find good food for thought in this book.

Evgeny Maslin, Head, 12th Main Directorate of the Ministry of Defense (1992-1997)
