Survival Is Not Enough: Soviet Realities and America's Future

By Richard Pipes
Simon & Schuster, 1984
288 pp. $16.95

Professor Pipes, the Reagan Administration's guru on this subject, presents a cogent, consistent and comprehensive statement of his thoughts on Soviet grand strategy for global hegemony, together with some proposals on what to do about it. He places himself neither among the doves, with their faith in pragmatism, good will and détente, nor among the hawks, with their concentration on military strength and containment. A main theme is the connection between the U.S.S.R.'s internal system and its foreign policy, and the need for the West to intensify the crisis in the former in order to cope with the latter.
