An approach that relates theory not to an unattainable world order but to practical progress toward accepted rules of the game in interaction between states. A long disquisition on the determinants and the pattern of U.S.-Soviet behavior since World War II, with which some will quarrel, is more than just another opinion about responsibility for the cold war; it forms a basis for new conceptual thinking rooted in international reality. A stimulating book.
