Detailed important history

I grant the point of the earlier reviewer that this is a very detailed book in some ways and not of tremendous interest to a general reader. As a writer, Schweitzer is "workmanlike." However, the value of his book is in recording details of a small but important part of post-Cold War history. As of 2003, the ISTC process is still alive. The threats the organization was formed to combat are still significant.

Although this is more a personal account than an attempt at "objective historical reporting" he does not try to gloss over the problems, shortcomings and frustrations his team encountered initiating this important international organization.

This book is worth a read for those involved in any kind of transnational or international organization formation.

Factual but dry-valuable for history buffs

This book is not a techno-thriller, but it documents in excruciating detail the process whereby the Russian govt. agreed to establish the International Science and Technology Center (ISTC) in Moscow. Note: continued US funding for the ISTC remains in doubt, given the budget hawks in the US Congress
