Western Doctrines On East-West Trade
Western Doctrines On East-West Trade
By Peter van Ham
St. Martin's, 1992, 276 pp.

This first-rate study rises well above the level of most books on East-West economic relations. In contrasting the assumptions, perceptions and practices of those who have advocated some kind of containment and those who have sought the political benefits of promoting interdependence, the Dutch author has used a rich variety of historical and contemporary material.
