Description

First published in 1999, this volume examines Soviet-American relations with a specific emphasis on the American use of trade pressure in comparison with Soviet involvement in regional conflicts, in contrast to a broader East-West dichotomous analysis. Mohammed Ishaq addresses the history of the political and economic partnership, followed by the questions of non-strategic trade, strategic trade, Soviet policy on human rights and Soviet involvement in the Third World and regional conflicts. In doing so, Ishaq recognises the use of trade pressure as economic statecraft in foreign policy in a reassessment of its effectiveness.
