Straightforward historical accounts of Soviet relations with three border countries from the 19th century to the present day. The author, a recognized authority in this field, uses generally familiar material and offers little that is new, except in the coverage of Afghanistan. He reaches conclusions about the success of Soviet policies that other observers may find too sweeping.
