An important contribution to Soviet studies. With admirable balance and insight Mr. Moore investigates the interaction between Communist ideology and Soviet political practices from the period of Lenin's theoretical formulations to the present Soviet bureaucratic state. His method of defining the principal questions concerning internal influences on Soviet foreign policy is particularly noteworthy.
