The Soviet Bloc, Energy, and Western Security
By Jonathan B. Stein
Lexington Books (for the Center for Strategic and International Studies, Ge, 1983, 97 pp

His concise but detailed survey of other energy sources and the needs of socialist Eastern Europe as a whole underlines the point. The book stops short of drawing conclusions for Western policy.
