  • One Hundred Years of Russian-American Relations
    • Authors: Leffler M; Hitchcock W.
      Pages: 513 - 516
      Abstract: In the spring of 2017 many members of SHAFR participated in an exchange of emails and expressed frustration, indeed exasperation, over the prevailing state of affairs in the United States and elsewhere around the globe. Scholars voiced their dismay at the disregard for truth, facts, and objective analysis, as well as the scorn for expertise, among our leaders and in our public discourse. SHAFR members asked one another how they could make a difference. They wondered whether they could transcend the gulf that was dividing the American public. What could historians do to bridge the gap and assist policymakers'

  • Lenin
    • Authors: Westad O.
      Pages: 517 - 520
      Abstract: Lenin was a Marxist revolutionary who saw himself, and his organization, the Bolsheviks, as the vanguard of the global working class. His view of the world was based on what he saw as the unavoidable confrontation of opposing forces in world politics, socialism vs. capitalism. In his policies he was relentlessly internationalist, even though he was quite capable of temporary compromise on behalf of the Soviet state, which was based within the former Russian empire. His ideology was universalist, more so than even Marx himself: Lenin believed that the Russian revolution had set a pattern that all countries would have to follow, at least in broad outline, on their way to socialism. Lenin’s ultimate aim was a universal Soviet state, which would implement, first, socialism, and then Communism, on a global scale.

  • Wilson and Lenin
    • Authors: Manela E.
      Pages: 521 - 524
      Abstract: The ideological clash between U.S. President Woodrow Wilson and the Russian Bolshevik leader Vladimir Lenin, which began when the Bolsheviks took power in Russia in late 1917, was a defining moment in the international history of the twentieth century. Throughout his time in power, however, Wilson viewed the Bolshevik threat as merely one part of the global crisis of his era, a crisis that encompassed not only the ongoing world war but also a set of longer-term historical forces shaping developments both at home and abroad. So in order to understand Wilson’s response to Lenin and the lessons it has for our time, we must first consider the historical context of that relationship.

  • Stalin and Roosevelt
    • Authors: Plokhy S.
      Pages: 525 - 527
      Abstract: “The combination of Russian revolutionary sweep [emphasis added] with American efficiency is the essence of Leninism,” declared Joseph Stalin in 1924, the year of Lenin’s death.11 Stalin’s fascination with American culture and business ethic was shared by many Bolsheviks of the 1920s. The last words read by Lenin’s wife to her dying husband came from a short novel by American author Jack London. While the United States was among the last countries to establish diplomatic relations with the Soviet Union, American companies were open for business with the Soviets earlier than their European competitors, supplying expertise and equipment for Soviet construction sites from Magnitogorsk in the Urals to the Dnieper Hydroelectric Station in Ukraine.

  • Roosevelt/Kennan and Stalin
    • Authors: Costigliola F.
      Pages: 528 - 531
      Abstract: It has been easy for Americans to grow angry, exasperated, or disgusted with the Russians, regardless of whether Lenin, Stalin, Khrushchev, Brezhnev, or Putin was in charge. Think of all the appalling outrages, from the Katyn forest massacre and the mass rapes by Red Army soldiers during World War II, to the repression of Eastern Europe in the Cold War, to the more recent aggression against Georgia and Ukraine. Not to mention the Berlin and Cuban crises of a half-century ago and the egregious interference in the U.S. election last year. Even during the Grand Alliance, the Russians aggravated American sensibilities with their secretiveness and suspicion. It is therefore understandable—but also consequential—that strong emotions have conditioned how U.S. leaders and the public have conceptualized our ostensibly rational and objective national interests vis-à-vis Russia. Emotions are integral to all thinking, even thought that is supposedly rational. This does not mean that emotions determine policy, but rather that emotion-infused perspectives unavoidably influence our images, ideas, and beliefs.

      Abstract: What are the risks to global security when a disrupter rises to lead a nuclear-armed superpower' Imagine a leader who publicly vows “to smash [adversaries] in the teeth”; or who issues an off-hand nuclear threat to a foreign adversary while talking to a group of school teachers, saying “we have rockets which can land precisely at a preset target 13,000 kilometers away. This, if you want, is a warning ….”11

    • Authors: Larson D.
      Pages: 536 - 539
      Abstract: Despite his Cold War rhetoric, John F. Kennedy wanted to improve U.S.-Soviet relations after he took office in January 1961. In his inaugural address, Kennedy suggested that they “begin anew the quest for peace.” After only a month, Kennedy invited Nikita S. Khrushchev to an informal summit meeting, believing that the Soviet leader would appreciate this gesture of respect.

      Abstract: Vladimir Putin’s announcement to run for another term makes him the most durable leader in Russia’s recent history. Some think of Putin as “the new Brezhnev,” who might die in office many years from now. But is it fair to compare Putin to Leonid Brezhnev' Can the Soviet past provide any lessons for Russia’s present and future' What should the United States expect of Putin'

      Abstract: Although besieged by public anger over a volatile economy and failed foreign wars, a rise in terrorism, and impeachment proceedings in Congress, President Richard Nixon visited the U.S. Naval Academy in June 1974 and extolled détente with the Soviet Union. He defended his policies of cooperation with an aggressive Russian adversary.

  • Nixon/Kissinger and Brezhnev
    • Authors: Keys B.
      Pages: 548 - 551
      Abstract: In June 1973, Leonid Brezhnev arrived in Washington for his second summit meeting with President Richard Nixon. Knowing of the Soviet leader’s fondness for luxury automobiles, Nixon gave him a shiny Lincoln Continental. Brezhnev was delighted with the present and insisted on taking a spin around Camp David, speeding through turns while the president nervously asked him to slow down. Later, when they flew on Air Force One to Nixon’s summer home in San Clemente, Nixon pointed out the Grand Canyon and mentioned John Wayne. Brezhnev jumped up and drew a pair of imaginary Colt 45s. At the “Western White House,” the general secretary of the Communist Party of the USSR slept in Tricia Nixon’s room, surrounded by pink floral wallpaper. After Nixon toasted his guest at an intimate dinner in his dining room, Brezhnev teared up and gave the president a bear hug.

    • Authors: Wilson J.
      Pages: 552 - 555
      Abstract: On September 12, 2017, Vladimir Putin surpassed Leonid Brezhnev’s tenure of 6,601 days as the top leader of Russia.11 Although he was not actually standing nearby Ronald Reagan in Red Square in May 1988, as the American photographer of that iconic image has since contended, he witnessed the collapse of Soviet power in Eastern and Central Europe as a KGB operative in Dresden.22 Sixty-four years old, Putin is now five years younger than Reagan was on January 20, 1981, and is certainly in better physical shape than was Brezhnev as he sat in the Kremlin on that day. Putin may yet match Joseph Stalin’s longevity.

      Abstract: The conditions that underpinned U.S.-Soviet relations during the George H. W. Bush presidency were vastly different from today. Nevertheless, President Bush’s adroit diplomacy, which built upon President Ronald Reagan’s strategic choices, offers insights for American policy toward Russia three decades later. The United States must build economic strength, leverage power, tend to allies, act prudently, and recognize that Russians must decide their own future.

      Abstract: Mistrust is a word that can best describe U.S.-Russian relations today. Mutual suspicions are prevalent in both countries. According to the last president of the Soviet Union, Mikhail Gorbachev, “this trust was not undermined yesterday; it happened long ago. The roots of the current situation lie in the events of the 1990s.”11

      Abstract: When leaders in the Kremlin have surprised the world, it has almost always been bad news. The notable exception came in the final fifteen years of the twentieth century. The last leader of the USSR, Mikhail Gorbachev, and his protégé-turned-rival-and-successor, Boris Yeltsin, the first president of the Russian Federation, set about to democratize society. They wanted to permit freedom of speech and the press, eradicate repression, and cooperate with the West, particularly the United States.

      Abstract: As the Cold War ended, George H. W. Bush and Secretary of State James Baker came to see Mikhail Gorbachev, the Soviet leader, as a valuable partner with whom they could work to end the Cold War on U.S. terms and build a “new world order” founded on U.S.-Soviet cooperation. Aware of Gorbachev’s fragile hold on power, they hoped to “lock in” geopolitical gains while he remained in office.11 They also sought to preserve Soviet strategic stability, fearing the specter of a “Yugoslavia with nukes.”22

  • Putin and Bush 43 / Obama
    • Authors: Rumer E.
      Pages: 576 - 578
      Abstract: The record of U.S. policy toward Russia over the past quarter century is hard to mistake for anything but failure—repeated failure. In January 1991, President George H. W. Bush spoke before a joint session of congress of his desire “to continue to build a lasting basis” for cooperation with Russia.11 Three U.S. presidents—Clinton, Bush 43, and Obama—subsequently embraced the goal of a productive, cooperative, and sustainable relationship with Russia. All tried, none succeeded. Each left the relationship to his successor in a much worse shape than it was in when he took it over. During each presidential transition, the consensus in Washington was that the relationship could not possibly get worse. Each time it did. Now the goal of a productive, cooperative, and sustainable relationship with Russia is more distant than when George H. W. Bush first described his vision.

      Abstract: In the spring of 2012, soon after Vladimir Putin returned to the Russian presidency following four quiet years as prime minister, Barack Obama sat down with a few of his top advisers in the White House Situation Room to discuss the way forward. Obama had invested a lot in the “reset” with Russia, and believed it had achieved some meaningful wins. But he had no illusions about the Russian leader—having first met Putin during a tense 2009 meeting in Moscow, when Obama was subjected to one of his customary harangues about the West’s betrayals—and understood that U.S.-Russian relations were likely to get worse.

      Abstract: How can we explain the repeated failure of U.S. and Russian leaders to “reset” their relationship since the end of the Cold War' The core cause lies in a combination of major asymmetries and incompatible policy objectives, especially about the international status of Russia’s historical borderlands.

      Pages: 586 - 589
      Abstract: I have never had any doubt about the value of scholarship for understanding contemporary events or the challenge of national security policy-making. Scholarship, explanation, and policy-making are all at their core the same thing: a matter of cause-and-effect. Do leaders make a difference' Are democracies less likely to fight one another' What are the causes of foreign intervention' What would deter military attack' Do the sources of national interests lie in geopolitics or in the particular history, culture, political institutions, or economy of countries' Academic debates are not much help to decision-makers, but knowledge of cause-and-effect relationships and which key factors (in social science jargon, variables) are likely to produce desired (or disastrous) outcomes are central to the daily work of government officials and national security leaders.
