One more symposium on East-West relations in Europe, and not quite up to date (the papers were written in early 1982), but the prospective reader should not be put off. This is a collection of first-rate essays. The names are familiar-William Griffith, Robert Legvold, Gerhard Wettig, Pierre Hassner, among others-but the content is not as familiar as one might expect. Legvold has a perceptive chapter on France and Soviet policy; Joan Barth Urban carries on the story of Eurocommunism, nearly forgotten since the heady days of the 1970s; and Hassner is, as always, Hassner.
