Soviet Foreign Relations: Documents & Readings

Excerpt

This collection of documents and readings on foreign relations of the Soviet Union developed from a course, "The Soviet Union in World Affairs," offered at Syracuse University. When the course was introduced, so many of the materials which the students needed were not readily available that it was necessary to assemble them as a basis both for understanding and for class discussion. Most of these documents have thus been used in mimeograph form. Because of their usefulness they have been brought together in book form.

Many of the items are not "state papers." as American scholars think of such papers, but are primarily "propaganda." However, they represent the viewpoints and conclusions which the Soviet leaders wish others to accept, even though they themselves may not believe these statements. The ability to recognize the type of argument used by the Communists and to understand why it is being used is most important in the study of this very complex area of Soviet relations.

I should like to express my appreciation to all who have given permission for the use of copyrighted materials.
