Soviet Diplomacy and the Spanish Civil War
Soviet Diplomacy and the Spanish Civil War
By David T. Cattell
University of California Press, 1957, 204 pp.

This volume, a sequel to the author's "Communism and the Spanish Civil War" (noted here October 1955), deals with "the Soviet attempt to use the Spanish crisis to strengthen her relations with England and France and to defend herself against German aggression." The author, however, does not see Soviet policy as purely defensive; the theme of subversion and Communist expansion is also present.
