 The most controversial Russia expert in America. The Chronicle Review

War With Russia? is an alternative narrative of Donald Trumps US and Putins Russia, from Americas most prominent Russian scholar. America is in a new Cold War with Russia even more dangerous than the one the world barely survived in the twentieth century. The Soviet Union is gone, but the two nuclear superpowers are again locked in political and military confrontations, now from  Ukraine to Syria. All of this is exacerbated by Washingtons war-like demonizing of the Kremlin leadership and by Russiagates unprecedented allegations. US mainstream media accounts are highly selective and seriously misleading. American disinformation, not only Russian, is a growing peril. In War With Russia?, Stephen F. Cohen  the widely acclaimed historian of Soviet and post-Soviet Russia gives readers a very different, dissenting narrative of this more dangerous new Cold War from its origins in the 1990s, the actual role of Vladimir Putin, and the 2014 Ukrainian crisis to Donald Trumps election and todays unprecedented Russiagate allegations. Cohens views have made him, it is said, Americas most controversial Russia expert. Some say this to denounce him, others to laud him as a bold, highly informed critic of US policies and the dangers they have helped to create.  War With Russia? gives readers a chance to decide for themselves.

Stephen F. Cohen is Professor Emeritus of Politics at Princeton University, where for many years he was also director of the Russian Studies Program, and Professor Emeritus of Russian Studies and History at New York University. His other books include Bukharin and the Bolshevik Revolution: A Political Biography; Rethinking the Soviet Experience; Sovieticus; Failed Crusade: America and the Tragedy of Post-Communist Russia; and Soviet Fates and Lost Alternatives. Cohen is married to Katrina vanden Heuvel.

Katrina vanden Heuvel is Editor and Publisher of The Nation, as well as a frequent commentator on US and international politics for ABC, MSNBC, CNN and PBS. Her articles have appeared in The Washington Post, The Los Angeles Times, The New York Times and The Boston Globe.  She writes a weekly column for The Washington Post.  She is the author of several books, including The Change I Believe In: Fighting for Progress in The Age of Obama.  She has received numerous awards for public service from various groups--the New York Civil Liberties Unions Callaway Prize for the Defense of the Right of Privacy; the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee's  Voices of Peace award and the Asian American Legal Defense and Education Funds Justice in Action award. In 2010, she received the Exceptional Woman in Publishing Award. In 2013, she received American Rights at Works Eleanor Roosevelt Human Rights Award; the Center for Community Change's Champion in Activism Award.
