The Obama Administration’s “Reset Button” for Russia

The Obama Administration’s “Reset Button” for Russia

(p.327) Chapter Twelve The Obama Administration’s “Reset Button” for Russia

Andrew C. Kuchins

NYU Press

This chapter address the key themes and issues driving Washington's perspective on and policy toward Russia to set the historical background for an examination of the Obama administration's efforts to improve ties with Russia during the past year and the future prospects for the relationship. The approach is explicitly U.S.-centric in its analysis of Russian actions, principally in the context of how they are perceived and how they influence U.S. policy toward Russia. The focus is likewise on the Obama administration's Russian policy, which is popularly summarized by the notion of a “reset.” The chapter thus examines the origins and sources of this reset, its nature and limitations, and its prospects.

Keywords:   reset button, Obama Administration, Russian policy, U.S.-centric approach, U.S. policy
