Failed Crusade reveals what really happened in Russia after the end of the Soviet Union and exposes the complicity of United States policy in a great human tragedy. Drawing on many years of studying and living in Russia, Stephen Cohen shows that what US officials and other experts call "reform" has for most Russians been a catastrophic development and for the US, the worst foreign policy disaster since Vietnam. An alarming analysis emerges of nuclear-laden Russia after 1991 and the corrupt Yeltsin era, as well as an indictment of American policy-makers who failed to see or report the truth about developments in Russia. Failed Crusade is also a deeply informed and passionate call for a new policy toward Russia in the new millennium. Arguing that the US crusade of the early 1990s to transform post-Communist Russia into a replica of America was ill-conceived and bound to be counter-productive, and that developments in Russia today represent a greater threat than they did during the Cold War, Cohen sets forth a bold plan for a fundamentally different American-Russian relationship in the post-Yeltsin era.
