It tells us just how dramatic change has been when a book offering a radically different prescription for U.S. policy toward the departed Soviet Union and published in December 1991 is only months later of merely historical interest. The historical interest is in Brement's sharp critique of U.S. policy in what turned out to be the last year of Soviet power. One might add, in fairness to the author, a senior American diplomat whose most serious shortcoming in this instance is one of timing, that not all of the faults to which he points have disappeared, although the Soviet Union has.
