Publisher's Summary

Conventional wisdom in the West blames the Ukraine crisis on Russian aggression. But this account is wrong: Washington and its European allies actually share most of the responsibility, having spent decades pushing east into Russia's natural sphere of interest.

    "Biased"

    The title is a bit of a give away but the author has quite extreme views.
    I'm not convinced that it is The West's fault having listened to it.
    I can understand that the Russian government felt threatened by the expansion of NATO but jumping to the conclusion that is The West's fault is extreme.

    The author expresses anti-liberal views which are irrelevant to the subject and unnecessary.

    "I agree. Worth listening to."

    I did not like or agree with the authors book on Israel, but he hits this issue about the Ukraine on the head. My father was born in the Ukraine and immigrated to the US as a youngster after WWI. I have no positive nor warm feelings to the Ukraine for their residents agressive support and assistance to the Nazis. The author is correct that the intervention of the west, especially the US for the military problems their with the break up of their country and the invassion of Putin. No doubt if the shoe was on the other foot such as the Russian import of missles into. Cuba a country that is our neighbor drew us into a potential World Nuclear War with Russia. This time it was our meddling in the Ukraine Russia's neighbor brought Russia into Military action to push us back.
