The Aspen Strategy Group's Policy Books is an annual series of pieces on the United States most pressing foreign policy and national security issues written by contemporary thought leaders. This edition is a collection of papers commissioned for the 2014 Aspen Strategy Group Summer Workshop. On the occasion of the 30th year anniversary of the Aspen Strategy Group (founded in 1984), the Summer Workshop in Aspen, CO convened a nonpartisan group of preeminent U.S.-Russia policy experts, academics, journalists, and business leaders. The Group's policy discussions were guided by the papers found in this volume, whose scope ranges from exploring the history of the U.S.-Russia relationship, current developments in the Sino-Russian relationship, the NATO and European responses to Russian aggression in Eastern Europe, energy considerations, areas of potential U.S.-Russia cooperation, and finally, the broader question of U.S. national security and interests in the European region.
