Mutual Security: A New Approach To Soviet-American Relations

Edited by Richard Smoke and Andrei Kortunov
St. Martin's Press, 1991
430 pp. $49.95

Simultaneously printed in America and the Soviet Union, this book is the product of a two-year collaboration between the Center for Foreign Policy Development at Brown University and the U.S.A. Institute in Moscow. The pace of change first made its innovative approach mainstream, then cast into doubt its implicit assumption that each nation is the other's main security threat. Its rich analyses range widely, however, and its approach to "mutual security" is powerful-not common sense or cooperation, but rather "a tough-minded joint investigation of each side's fundamental national security interests and the means by which perceived threats might be reduced."
