    Publisher's Note

    In late 1999 when Vladimir Putin was named Prime Minister, Russia was a budding democracy. Multiple parties campaigned for seats in the Duma, the nation’s parliament. The media criticized the government freely. Eight years later as Putin completes his second term as president of Russia and announces his bid for prime minister, the country is under a repressive regime. Human rights abuses are widespread. The Kremlin is openly hostile to the West. Yet the United States and Europe have been slow to confront the new reality, in effect, helping Russia win what experts are now calling the New Cold War.

    Edward Lucas, former Moscow Bureau Chief for The Economist, offers a harrowing portrait from inside Russia as well as a sobering political assessment of what the New Cold War will mean for the world. In this big, hard hitting and urgently needed book, he shows how

    * Russia is pursuing global energy markets
    * Neighboring nations are being coerced back into the former Soviet orbit
    * Journalists and dissidents are being silenced
    * Foreign investments and private enterprises are routinely defrauded
    * Putin is laying the groundwork for controlling industry and planning his new role as prime minister

    Drawing on new and hitherto reported material, The New Cold War brilliantly anticipates what is in store for the new Russia and what the world should be doing.
     

    Industry reviews
    "[Lucas's] book is an outstanding piece of research and a testimony to its author's thorough knowledge and understanding of Russia in general, and its last seventeen years in particular."
     (02/01/2008)

    "The distinguished British journalist Edward Lucas has produced a firecracker of a book to throw into the growing crowd of Putinophiles....he pities Russia and the Russians, and one half of THE NEW COLD WAR is a convincing account of the damage their rulers have done to them. Few recent books range so vividly across the media, courts, pipelines, crimininality and Kremlin politics."
