Detente and Dollars: Doing Business with the Soviets

Excerpt

As in any study of this sort, it is always pleasant to acknowledge the cooperation of numerous individuals and institutions.

I appreciate the willingness of the Harvard Business Review to let me republish portions of my article Who Profits More From U.S. -- Soviet Trade? which appeared in their November-December 1973 issue and of Foreign Policy to let me use portions of my article Red Black Gold, which appeared in their Fall 1972 issue. I am also grateful for the financial and logistical support of Wellesley College and the Russian Research Center of Harvard University. In particular, Helen Blatt, Ruth Halpern, Mary Towle, Rose Di Benedetto, Betsy Mead, Chris Porto, and Helen Constantine deserve my thanks. Only they know how many drafts and redrafts were typed and under what nagging. Susan Gardos and Elena Vorobey in the Russian Research Center Library have also been cooperative and understanding as have numerous executives of the Pullman, Singer, Raytheon, PepsiCo, and Holcroft corporations.

Although it is against the rules I also want to express my thanks to my editor, Martin Kessler, with whom I have worked since 1962. He is stubborn but perceptive and although I do not always show it, I value his counsel. Finally, my wife Merle deserves someone's sympathy for having to go over everything I write. That she still is willing to suffer this agony after all these years is as important to me as seeing the manuscript finally turned into a book.
