During the Soviet period, Islam was largely ignored and viewed as a bourgeois phenomenon which would fade over time. With the ongoing conflict in Chechnya to recent upheavals in Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan, Islamic militancy has now become a major security threat. Bowker examines the newly emerging relationship between Russia and the United States in the fight against the common threat of international terrorism. He looks at the difficulties of such a relationship by analyzing the lingering mutual suspicion, differing views on the nature of the global terrorist threat and how each side have continued to pursue their own national interests. Students and scholars of foreign policy and regional specialists will find this book insightful.
