An impressive edition, compiled from papers and discussions at a 1976 National Science Foundation Workshop. The main subjects are Soviet science policy and organization, relationships with the economic and political systems, dependence on Western technology, and prospects for U.S.-U.S.S.R. cooperation. A major work, made more valuable by the comprehensive introductory essay that outlines the primary themes and issues, and proposes guidelines for future U.S.-Soviet interaction.
