First published in 1990, The Soviet Union and the Pacific provides comprehensive analysis of Soviet strategy in the Pacific, examining both the successes of, and the constraints on, Soviet policy towards the nations and resources of the Pacific rim. Set against the downfall of the Soviet empire, this policy records a departure from the treatment of the Pacific as an arena only for military competition to an important terrain of Mikhail Gorbachev’s foreign policy. This book is designed to serve as an introduction to the role of Soviet Union in the Pacific for undergraduates, scholars, policymakers, and business people.
