The Soviet Syndrome

By Alain Besançon
Harcourt Brace Jovanovich, 1978
128 pp. $8.95

An extended essay that deals with some familiar themes - e.g., the central role of ideology in the Soviet system (although nobody believes the ideology), the unity of aim and diversity of method in foreign policy, the lessons the West has failed to learn - in an arresting and sometimes original way.
