UKRAINE: ZBIG'S GRAND CHESSBOARD & HOW THE WEST WAS CHECKMATED Zbigniew Brzezinski's The Grand Chessboard: American Primacy and Its Geostrategic Imperatives has long been the operative canon for State Department Hawks, Neoconservatives and Russophobes. Since the fall of the Soviet Union, the implementation of Zbig's Grand strategy has moved at a feverish pace, gobbling up former Soviet satellites and then converting them into NATO forward bases. The endgame for the West, via these moves, has always been to quash Russian and ostensibly Chinese independence, economic viability and, thus, their ability to project power in Eurasia. Ukraine: ZBIG's Grand Chessboard & How the West Was Checkmated speaks to the historical and geostrategic moves by the West to control the Eurasian landmass: the broken promises and treaties, the geostrategic missteps and, finally, how Grand Chessboard fundamentalism actually catalyzed Russia's re-emergence as a global power, shifted geostrategic power eastward and, proverbially, snatched defeat from the jaws of a U.S./NATO victory.

Reviews

In this must-read book the authors offer an alternative reading of recent American history a reading shockingly at odds with that of the mainstream press. They inform us that the so-called Ukraine crisis and the making of a bogey man of Putin derives from a larger chessgame the West has engaged in from the time we broke our promise to Gorbachev that NATO would not be expanded. They inform us that neocon ideologies are alive and well even in the Obama administration and that the West is in fact playing a losing game to Putin and his emerging ally, China. It is a sad and potentially scary story of ideologies run amok and seems especially ominous in light of the current presidential debates that shed more heat than light on current American history. This book signals a wake-up call even as it blows the whistle on America s kept press for what it has not told us. The authors dare to fill in the gaping holes that constitute our collective ignorance. They have done their homework. They are courageous in their truth-telling. Will Americans listen? Matthew Fox, Bestselling Author, Anglican Priest, Educator--Kermit Heartsong and Natylie Baldwin "UKRAINE: ZBIG'S GRAND CHESSBOARD & HOW THE WEST WAS CHECKMATED "
