Red Star on the Nile: The Soviet-Egyptian Relationship Since the June War

By Alvin Z. Rubinstein

Princeton University Press, 1977, 383 pp.

The most balanced and comprehensive study we have yet had on this subject. In addition to the year-to-year ups and downs, the author provides some interesting reflections on the nature of influence and the reasons why the weaker party rather than the superpower got the better of the bargain.
