Book review: A. Torkunov, N. Noonan, T. Shakleina: Russia and the United States in the evolving world order. Moscow MGIMO-University 2018. 414 p.

The title of this English-language book «Russia and the United States in the evolving world order» makes a reader think about the expert discussion on the «new», «transforming», «evolving» world order, and even as some researchers propose «disorder». The authors try to answer, perhaps, the most important question of the current international relations: what the world will look like tomorrow.

Key words: Russian-American relations, world order, regional stability, nuclear security, outer space research, energy security, Asia-Pacific region, China, Crimea, Post-Soviet states.
