About the Author

Stephen F. Szabo is Executive Director of the Transatlantic Academy, an independent research institute based at the German Marshall Fund of the United States in Washington DC, USA. He is the author of numerous books and articles focusing on Transatlantic relations and German foreign policy including Parting Ways: The Crisis in German-American Relations (2004).


An original and indispensable corrective to the overly political-military focus of most writing on Europe, Russia, and global politics. -- Andrew Moravcsik * Foreign Affairs *
Quite simply the best book to appear on any aspect of contemporary German foreign policy in recent years. * William Paterson OBE, Emeritus Director of the Institute for German Studies, University of Birmingham, UK *
Stephen Szabo brings his deep historical and contemporary knowledge to bear in deftly analyzing the German-Russian relationship. This engagingly written book explains the role of economic and commercial factors in driving Germany's Russia policy and should serve as required reading for scholars and students who wish to better understand the present and future course of a relationship that has tremendous implications for the United States, Europe and Eurasia. * James Goldgeier, Dean of the School of International Service at American University, USA *
Stephen Szabo's volume on German relations with Russia in the larger geo-economic context is an important contribution to a better understanding of the long-range complexity of that issue. He correctly puts emphasis on the historically significant economic links between the two states, but he also conveys a keen understanding of the geopolitical dangers inherent in a one-dimensional approach. Szabo's book is thus a genuinely significant contribution to geostrategic literature. * Zbigniew Brzezinksi, Senior Research Professor of International Relations, John Hopkins University, USA *
