Détente or Debacle: Common Sense in U.S.-Soviet Relations
Détente or Debacle: Common Sense in U.S.-Soviet Relations
Edited by Fred Warner Neal
Norton (for the American Committee on East-West Accord), 1979, 108 pp

Pithy essays by distinguished commentators including Les Aspin, John Kenneth Galbraith, George F. Kennan, George Kistiakowsky and David Riesman. The authors lament the rising obstacles to détente and argue for a less censorious American approach to the Soviet Union. Riesman, for one, sees the human rights campaign as a threat to further agreements on nuclear weapons.
