Introduction
1. The best study of Soviet wartime diplomacy scarcely touches on the period 1940- 42: Vojtech Mastny, Russia's Road to the Cold War: Diplomacy, Warfare, and the Politics of Communism, 1941-1945 ( New York, 1979). There are many excellent studies of wartime Anglo-Soviet relations, all of which deal in passing with the period covered by this work. See, for example, the two fine studies by Elisabeth Barker , British Policy in South-East Europe in the Second World War ( London, 1976) and Churchill and Eden at War ( London, 1978) and Victor Rothwell, Britain and the Cold War, 1941-1947 ( London, 1982). The only book to examine Anglo-Soviet relations in detail for the period 1940-42 is Gabriel Gorodetsky, Stafford Cripps' Mission to Moscow, 1940-42 ( Cambridge, 1984). Readers looking for a very different view about this period are advised to read Gorodetsky's erudite book. Gorodetsky finds more to admire in Stafford Cripps's diplomacy than I do, and he describes his account of Soviet-British relations as "revisionist."
