Summary "Russia, NATO and Cooperative Security explores the common ground between Russia and NATO and the potential to move beyond cultural differences. Lionel Ponsard clearly demonstrates how cooperative security could serve as a means to bridge the gap between two supposedly antagonistic entities: NATO and Russia. He skilfully shows that by building confidence between the two parties about each other's intentions, cooperative security can regulate attitudes that might otherwise lead to misperception. Drawing on his extensive knowledge of Russia, the author focuses on the peculiarity of NATO-Russia relations and emphasises the Russian approach to analyse them."--BOOK JACKET
