Science Between The Superpowers

By Yakov M. Rabkin
Priority Press, 1988
119 pp. $8.95

This is a study of specific programs for the exchange of U.S and Soviet scientists that have taken place within the framework of intergovernmental agreements and under the auspices of the National Academy of Sciences and the Soviet Academy of Sciences. The study is thorough, objective and sensible in its conclusions. Recognizing that the Soviet Union uses these exchanges for the advancement of its own strategic objectives and not for the general advancement of science, and that for the American side the benefits are largely illusive, Rabkin argues that the U.S. should continue to participate in these programs, but only on the same basis as such cooperation is conducted with non-totalitarian countries.
