Download audio (MP3)

Stephen Sestanovich is no stranger to tense negotiations like those currently taking place between Russia and the United States. In the late 1990s, he served as a U.S. ambassador-at-large for the former Soviet Union and was the State Department's principal officer working on Russian policy. In his new book, "Maximalist," Sestanovich looks at U.S. foreign policy from the Truman through Obama administrations. He joins us to discuss his book, the ongoing situation in Ukraine, and the referendum vote in Crimea.

Host: Michael Krasny


  • Stephen Sestanovich, professor of international diplomacy at Columbia University and author of "Maximalist: America in the World from Truman to Obama"
