American Perceptions and Soviet Realities

Stephen F. Cohen (Author, Princeton University)


“A unique and valuable contribution. . . .Cohen brings to his analyses a keen critical perception, vast knowledge and—most noteworthy—a lucid style that makes his informed comments accessible to the non-specialist reader.” —Newspaper Guild, 1985 Page One Award

Gorbachev, dissidents, and Cold War perils are some of the topics discussed in this book that provides the historical context and informed analysis so often lacking in American commentary on Soviet affairs today.
