Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Under the leadership of Vladimir Putin, Russia has used its energy bonanza as political leverage over Europe and other areas of the world and to fill state coffers. With the newfound riches, argues Wood (American Center for Democracy), the Russian military has been developing missile technology designed to counter American capabilities and without intelligent response by American policy makers, he warns, Russia stands poised to use its energy riches and missile capabilities to emerge as the world's superpower by 2015." - Reference & Research Book News

"Wood (American Center for Democracy) presents a wealth of descriptive data on Russian energy and missile capabilities. . . . Recommended. All undergraduate, graduate, and research collections." - Choice
