The Dilemma of Reform in the Soviet Union

By Timothy J. Colton
Council on Foreign Relations, 1984
120 pp. $6.95

Here in a brief but meaty presentation is a status report on the U.S.S.R. and the decisions that lie ahead. Cautious but not timid in his analysis and predictions, Colton assesses the Brezhnev legacy, the shifts in emphasis if not direction under Andropov, the inevitable generational change in leadership, and the prospects for reform. He finds considerable evidence in the economic and other specialized Soviet publications on how the problems and dilemmas are seen and discussed in the U.S.S.R. itself.
