Preface

This volume is an outgrowth of a September 27-28, 1995 conference at which Russian and American policymakers and policy analysts discussed specially prepared case studies of U.S. and Russian policymaking with respect to the use of force. The conference, held in Washington, D.C., was jointly sponsored by RAND's Center for Russian and Eurasian Studies, and the Center for Ethnopolitical and Regional Research in Moscow, as part of a multiyear program of collaborative research, training, and institution-building that began in October 1994.

On behalf of both of these centers, we would like to thank the Carnegie Corporation of New York for its support of this program. We would also like to thank Adam Stulberg and Jane Siegel for their invaluable assistance in preparing this publication.
