Soviet Foreign Economic Policy Under Perestroika
Soviet Foreign Economic Policy Under Perestroika
By Leonard Geron
Council on Foreign Relations Press (for the Royal Institute of Internationa, 1990, 126 pp.

A generally upbeat assessment of the Gorbachev regime's declared intentions and actual accomplishments-which are much less-in bringing the Soviet Union into the international economy. Geron recognizes formidable obstacles and knows that reforming foreign economic relations depends on the success of domestic reform, but he sees the direction of change as irreversible. In relatively few pages he packs much information and includes some useful tables.
