Soviet Influence in Eastern Europe: Political Autonomy and the Warsaw Pact

By Christopher D. Jones
Praeger, 1981

The political-military structure of the Warsaw Pact has a great deal to do with the nature of the "socialist international relations" between the U.S.S.R. and the states of Eastern Europe. In this searching and well-presented study of how the system works, and where it does not work, the author makes the interesting but not wholly proven argument that the key to Moscow's decisions on intervention to stifle deviation by the satellite states lies in the capacity and will of those states for military self-defense.
