This lively account of the 1982 dispute between the United States and several of its European allies about support for the building of the Soviet pipeline to Western Europe is full of facts and well-digested data. It correctly links the episode to long-standing differences in attitudes toward trade with the U.S.S.R. and in the process naturally covers a good bit of familiar ground. An analysis demonstrating how little the United States achieved by its efforts opens the way for the conclusion that there will be increased East-West trade but great political advantage will not necessarily flow from it.
