Russia and the Western World
Russia and the Western World
By Max M. Laserson
Macmillan, 1945, 275 pp

A Russian political scientist, who served briefly as a high official in the Kerensky régime, reviews the development of Soviet constitutional and legal institutions and thought. He notes an unmistakable trend to nationalism in contemporary Russia which he believes will continue, thereby minimizing the possibility of a return to a world-wide revolutionary policy. Dr. Laserson is thus sanguine about the future of Soviet coöperation with the west.
