Commenting on the award, which will be formally presented to Professor Stent at the State Department on November 19, the chairman of the Academy’s book selection committee, Ambassador (ret.) Howard Schaffer, called The Limits of Partnership “a comprehensive, informative, and highly readable account of how Washington and Moscow repeatedly tried and failed over the past quarter century to develop a solid working relationship. It is must reading for anyone who wants to understand the present U.S.-Russian confrontation.”
