"Putin's Revenge": Dr Kristina Spohr Co-Writes Cover Essay for New Statesman

Dr Kristina Spohr and Professor David Reynolds (University of Cambridge), co-editors of Transcending the Cold War (2016), contributed an essay to the latest edition of New Statesman (13-19 January 2017). Featured on the cover of the weekly magazine, their essay, “Putin’s revenge: why the Russian leader is obsessed with America”, traces the end of the Soviet Union, Yeltsin’s failed attempt to create a new Russia and the rise of Vladimir Putin’s strong state amid a new world disorder. “Twenty-five years after the demise of the Soviet Union”, they argue, “Russia is consumed by an insatiable desire for recognition as the equal of the USA”. “Today’s Russian-American stand-off revolves around differing approaches to international relations. (…) Although we may not be back in the era of bipolarity some of the new ways are also old ways. Under Putin, Russia seems to have resumed its historic quest for position against the West and its insatiable desire for recognition as America’s equal.” Read the full article here (free access).
