    As President Barack Obama's adviser on Russian affairs, Michael McFaul helped craft the United States' policy known as "reset" that fostered new and unprecedented collaboration between the two countries. And then, as US ambassador to Russia from 2012 to 2014, he had a front-row seat when this fleeting, hopeful moment crumbled with Vladimir Putin's return to the presidency. This riveting inside account combines history and memoir to tell the full story of US-Russia relations from the fall of the Soviet Union to the new rise of the hostile, paranoid Russian president.

    Earlier this month, Republican vice-presidential candidate Mike Pence made a pilgrimage to the Reagan library, where he tried to make the case that his running mate, Donald Trump, shared many ideas and traits with former president Ronald Reagan. I’m not a psychologist, so I don’t feel qualified to assess the extent of their shared optimism, and will leave it to economists to discuss overlap in their domestic agendas. But on foreign policy, there are almost no parallels whatsoever. Aside from a pledge to increase military spending, Trump’s national security policies have nothing in common with Ronald Reagan’s.
