The Soviet Triangle: Russia's Relations With China and the West in the 1980s
The Soviet Triangle: Russia's Relations With China and the West in the 1980s
By Donald R. Shanor
St. Martin's, 1980, 296 pp.

An American journalist's report, well conceived and well written, on the Soviet Union's relations with America, Europe and China, as it confronts actual or potential combinations among them. Although containing some reflections on the nature and future of the Soviet empire, essentially it is a general book for the general reader on the current situation, rather than prediction or prescription for the 1980s.
