A discussion of three major aspects of U.S. Eastern Europe policy: the influence of domestic ethnic groups on foreign policy making, trade and economic policy in relation to political ends, and the issue of human rights.

It is a soundly based and sensible study worthy of a careful reading, although it is not as novel as the author would have us believe; much of the "conventional wisdom" against which he is tilting is hardly to be taken seriously.
