“This is a report prepared for the American Friends Service Committee, a Quaker organization. Aimed at the informed general reader, the book argues that the recent shifts in Soviet foreign policy under Gorbachev result from domestic imperatives. Whether or not this positive trend in the cycle of detente is sustained depends on timely American responses to Soviet overtures. A generally balanced treatment; readers will especially benefit from Feffer’s concise and informative discussion of domestic sources of Soviet external relations. Rapidly transpiring events in the Soviet Union and Eastern Europe have dated portions of the book–an occupational hazard for works of this type. Still, a useful addition for larger international affairs collections.”
