Soviet Perspectives

  • Gerald Segal
Part of the St Antony’s/Macmillan Series book series


The Soviet Union’s position in Asia is improving, and a significant portion of the change is related to Moscow’s pivotal position in the great power triangle. As Mikhail Gorbachev takes the Soviet Union into the 1990s, he has placed his country in the enviable position of having simultaneously improved relations with both the United States and China. These two détentes come at a time when Sino-American relations have cooled and the Soviet Union finds itself under less threat in Asia than at any point in the post-war era.
