Why have Russian-American relations been on shaky ground over the last few years? According to military historian Victor Davis Hanson, it's all thanks to an "angry" Vladimir Putin. Hanson argues that Russia deliberately sets itself at odds with American policy not out of rational self-interest, but because of a sense of lingering Cold War enmity against the United States.

Beginning with an explanation of why the post-Cold War New World Order is rapidly breaking apart, Victor Davis Hanson sees a world where nations are returning to the ancient passions, rivalries, and differences of past centuries. In light of this world transformation, Hanson looks at key challenges the United States faces around the globe: in Europe, Asia, Russia, Mexico, and Iran. - Hoover Institution
