A useful addition to the growing literature on Soviet-East European and also East-West relations, since the Pact is now "more than a mechanism for transmitting orders from Moscow." The authors, British and American specialists in Soviet bloc affairs, go beyond the purely military aspects to examine political relations, economic factors, and problems of crisis management within the bloc.
