Surname 1 Name: Instructor: Course: Date: Russian International Relations in the Post-Cold War Era The history of the United States- Russia international relations is extensive and multidimensional accounting for over ten centuries. The two nations cooperated with each other and entered into long-term partnerships and friendships with phases of close associations and oppositions. However, during the cold war period and the post-cold war era, the US- Russia bilateral organization was affected significantly. In the cold war era, these two nations were competing for worldwide dominance to strategize an anticipated global order. This competition led to broken relations, which created threats of nuclear war and later on, the falling apart of the Soviet Union at the end of cold war hence, creating the new US- Russia relation in the post-cold war era. The end of the cold war brought about changes in the foreign policy and international relationship, during the eight years of the Bush and Clinton administrations (Post-cold War Era), the US policy towards Russia dwelled on the fact that Russia could not be integrated into the Western international system. The system comprised of assumptions concerning the market reliance, human rights, competition and the constitutional order in economic life including private possession in elections and economic life. These assumptions suggest that the members and prosperous partakers in the western-based international systems include those nations that adopt important factors regarding democracy and their markets.

Surname 2 The Russian society, therefore, experienced adverse changes ever since the Soviet fragmentation and the coming up of new theories governing the international relations. The breakdown of the Soviet Union and the Marxist social science led to the Russians making rational decisions in fine-tuning to the new realities. The Russian theory of international relations is explicit but narrowed to three traditions of civilizations, Western norms, and statism due to their emphasis on the west, the particular cultures and the independent state that identifies them as the Russian self. Therefore, the international relations theory is viewed as the world’s image developed systematically and grounded in a cultural history instead of the western social science evolutions. The end of history theorists such as Karl Max perceive the international relations in the post-cold war error as the end points of human’s sociopolitical developments and the generalization of the western open-minded social equality as the form of human government. The theorists believed that the movement of historical development was a goal-oriented mission ruled by the focus on material forces that would end up with the achievement of communist paradise, which would bring to an end all the previous contradictions. The concept of the “end of history” implies wrongly that the US has been dominant in establishing the history since the end of the cold war.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
