Soviet Policy for the 1980s

Soviet Policy for the 1980s

Edited by Archie Brown and Michael Kaser

Indiana University Press, 1983, 282 pp.

A British version of the same Western endeavor to see what the new Soviet leadership is up against and what its policies will mean both for Soviet society and for East-West relations. Less ambitious, less comprehensive than the Georgetown volume noted above, it has a corresponding set of stars among its authors and, while still worthy of the careful attention of experts, is easier going for the general reader.
