Rebooting the ‘Reset’

­Stephen Cohen – Historian

2012 is a year of political uncertainty and instability for Russia and the US. Both countries have presidential elections this year and, consequently, a change or at least an adjustment of the political course. As usual, Russian-American relations have become a burning issue in the election campaigns in both countries. So is Russia really America’s “number one foe”, as a Republican candidate said lately? Or is it just another populist statement? We’ll discuss it with Stephen Cohen, historian and brilliant expert on Russia and Russian-American relations.
