This brief monograph, less ambitious than its title, compares how leading Soviet newspapers, and by inference the individuals and elites identified with those papers, dealt with Soviet policy toward the Arab-Israeli conflict in October 1973. The method is perhaps too simple and the analysis too speculative, but the results are not without interest.
