Reviews

'...a penetrating, comprehensive and yet accessible study of Russian-US relations in the war on terror era. This book should be essential reading for anyone wishing to understand the interplay between these old Cold War rivals and a resurgent Islam in the Twenty First Century'. Lee Marsden, Oxford Brookes University, UK '...an authoritative and comprehensive, yet concise and succinct overview of US-Soviet/Russian relations through the prism of various crises and conflicts involving one or both these powers across the Islamic world...Each chapter case provides a balanced treatment of its subject, generally raises the most important issues indigenous to each, and avoids cliches and false assumptions.' The Russian Review 'Bowker's book tackles an extremely broad and complicated subject with simple and lucid language and the author makes a generally sincere and successful effort to remain objective despite the polarized political debates. The book would be valuable reading for anyone seeking an introduction to Russian foreign policy and modern international affairs.' The Slavonic and East European Review
