Gardner explores the global ramifications of the NATO-Russian relationship. He examines NATO's Partnership for Peace initiative as it relates to Russia, and he argues that NATO risks provoking Russia and other states that do not expect to become "full" members of the alliance. He contends that if NATO and Russia cannot reach a compromise over a new system of security in Central and Eastern Europe, then Russia could adopt an increasingly assertive "Eurasian" stance by more closely aligning with potentially anti-Western states such as Belarus, China, India, Iraq, and Iran. Likewise, the possibility of a renewed division of Europe cannot be ruled out. Gardner asserts that it is absolutely necessary to draw Russia into a concerted relationship with the United States and the European Union. He concludes by formulating a viable system of cooperative-collective security for all Central and Eastern European states backed by conjoint NATO, European, and Russian security guarantees. This is a thoughtful and provocative analysis of great interest to policymakers and students of international relations and contemporary defense issues.

?Gardner's treatment reflects a balance and objectivity that can be appreciated when so much of the discourse concerning United States security policy toward Russia continues to reflect the misconceptions and predjudices of the Cold War.....Gardner offers a thoughtful alternative to existing strategies for forging a post-Cold war security structure.....Hall Gardner's Dangerous Crossroads constitutes a significant contribution devoted to resolving an issue that will shape the security structure of the entire global community into the twenty-first century.?-Slavic Review
