Foreign Policies of the Soviet Union

Author: Richard F. Staar
ISBN: 978-0-8179-9102-9
Publication Date: 2/1/1991

Dr. Staar illustrates the continued importance of ideology in the USSR by pointing out that the new directions for the Gorbachev era are based in historical roots and precedent. Following an examination of the demise of the USSR as a politico-economic model for the Third World, the author focuses healthy skepticism on the new relationship with the United States by asking at what price we are willing to bankroll the failing economic policies of the "born-again democrats."
