Bear and Foxes: The International Relations of the East European States, 1965-1969
By Ronald H. Linden
East European Quarterly, 1979, 328 pp.

A comparative study of the foreign policies of the states of Eastern Europe which depends largely on tabulating "interactions" and "attitudes" and draws conclusions on the varying degrees and types of deviance on the part of the foxes from the lines established by the bear. How far the general attempt succeeds is debatable, but there is no question about the real value of the well-documented case study of Romanian policy.
