Summary

  • This book demonstrates Russia's intention to re-emerge as a full-fledged superpower before 2010 that would challenge America and China and potentially threaten a new arms race. Contrary to conventional wisdom, this goal is within the Kremlin's grasp, but the cost to the Russian people and global security would be immense.
