Soviet-American Relations With Pakistan, Iran and Afghanistan

Edited by Hafeez Malik
St. Martin's, 1987
431 pp. $37.50

Looked at from 19 different angles by as many expert authors, the problems of these three countries of the Persian Gulf region in relations with each other and with the two superpowers appear in all their complexity, and inevitably with some repetition. Even the seasoned observer will find something new here, and will also find stimulus to thought and debate, for each author is on his own and not reined in by any overall framework or editor's hand. Perhaps surprisingly, the treatment of U.S. policy is rather less full and coherent than that of Soviet policy, although the one chapter contributed by Soviet scholars is boilerplate.
