Soviet Foreign Policy: New Dynamics, New Themes
Soviet Foreign Policy: New Dynamics, New Themes
Edited by Carl G. Jacobsen
St. Martin's, 1989, 214 pp.

Gorbachev's new thinking and new departures in foreign policy, assessed by a number of seasoned experts, most of them Canadian, representing a diversity of interests and expertise. Besides the expected chapters on East-West relations and arms control there are others off the beaten track (e.g., on Arctic security). The editor contributes an excellent piece on relations with China. One recurrent theme: Gorbachev is for real; this is no exercise in propaganda and deception.
