Moscow's Third World Strategy

Princeton University Press, 16 de jul de 1990 - 329 páginas
"[This is] a careful, well-crafted and well-documented interpretation of the place of the Third World in overall Soviet policy by the doyen of U.S. specialists on Soviet policy toward developing countries. Moscow's Third World Strategy is essential reading for anyone seriously interested in Soviet foreign policy".--Roger E. Kanet, Soviet Studies "Rubinstein's book is written with a sure touch and mastery of the material, which he organizes according to different aspects of Soviet policy (involvement, intervention, support of liberation movements, and so on) rather than geographically". --Foreign Affairs "Unlike many scholars, Rubinstein does not rely heavily on Soviet journalistic and academic writing to illuminate Soviet policy and intentions in the Third World; rather, he relies almost exclusively on the record of Soviet actions. The result is a systematic survey of Moscow's Third World strategy from Lenin to Gorbachev, concise, brilliantly researched, and elegantly written". --Ilya Prizel, Orbis
