The study of Soviet foreign policy : decision-theory-related approaches by Arnold Lawrence Horelick( Book )

19 editions published between 1973 and 1976 in English and held by 332 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Scholarly literature on decisionmaking and Soviet foreign policy is reviewed for utility to practicing foreign affairs analysts. The cybernetic paradigm can serve as an alternative to the established analytic paradigm in generating multiple perspectives on foreign policy decisionmaking. Knowledge of organizational and bureaucratic context and theories involving cognitive operations and motivational forces permit generation of additional perspectives. New directions in Sovietology have been little affected by decision theory. Expanded knowledge about the context of Soviet foreign policy decisionmaking in forms susceptible to disciplined inquiry will permit development of middle-range decision theories specific to the Soviet context. Future research should explore Soviet "interest groups," Soviet organizational behavior on its own terms, "operational code" and elite studies of top Soviet decisionmakers, a set of case studies of Soviet foreign policy decisions as a necessary base for generalization, and Soviet media as a vehicle of intra-elite political communication
U.S. Soviet nuclear arms control : the next phase by Arnold Lawrence Horelick( Book )

22 editions published between 1985 and 1986 in English and Undetermined and held by 207 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper, which is included as a chapter in [U.S.-Soviet Relations: The Next Phase] (Cornell University Press, 1986), analyzes the nuclear arms control dimension of U.S.-Soviet relations as it enters a new phase. It reviews the developments and forces that led to the present impasse, discusses the nuclear arms agenda before the leaderships of the two states, and considers the prospects for future agreements. It includes an analysis of the Soviet and American arms control proposals of October and November 1985 and discusses prospects for agreement in the light of congruent and divergent aspects of the two proposals. The authors suggest that an arrangement between the superpowers that provided the Soviet Union with assurances against a U.S. strategic defensive breakout during the lifetime of any new far-reaching arms reduction treaty might facilitate conclusion of such an agreement. Constraints on flight testing might slow down the pace of the Strategic Defense Initiative (SDI), depending on precisely where the line was drawn between permitted research and forbidden testing and for how long. However, in the context of a new treaty reducing nuclear offensive arms, continued U.S. conduct of a vigorous SDI research program within agreed constraints would provide the Soviet Union with strong additional incentives to comply more punctiliously than it has in the past with treaty provisions
Managing U.S.-Soviet relations in the 1990s by Abraham S Becker( Book )

8 editions published in 1989 in English and Russian and held by 135 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report considers the effects of the changes initiated by General Secretary Mikhail Gorbachev on the Soviet Union's probable future internal development and external behavior, and the appropriate U.S. strategy toward the Soviet Union under these conditions. The authors conclude that there are grounds for hope for considerable improvement in East-West relations, but the uncertainties are substantial enough to warrant some reservation. After identifying several alternative Western strategies for dealing with the Soviet Union, they opt for one of step-by-step engagement. The United States should engage the Soviets in a two-level dialogue. On the first level, the United States should explore the kinds of fundamental changes in the Soviet Union that would make it possible to move beyond containment and deterrence to a better balanced, more cooperative East-West relationship; to consider what would constitute evidence that such changes were taking place; and to determine how to reciprocate Soviet self-restraint and cooperation. On the second level, the United States should continue the discussions on the current U.S.-Soviet agenda--arms control, regional and bilateral issues, human rights--to which the issue of East European instability should be added, in order to help delimit and defuse the superpower competition

U.S.-Soviet relations in the post-cold war era : implications for Korea by Arnold Lawrence Horelick( Book )

5 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 110 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The pace of change in Soviet-American relations since 1985 has been truly breath-taking. In the fall of 1990, two historic meetings of the leaders of the erstwhile Cold War rivals accelerated that already breath-taking pace still further. At a one-day summit meeting in Helsinki, Presidents George Bush and Mikhail Gorbachev jointly affirmed their common determination to reverse Iraq's aggression against Kuwait. a few days later, in Moscow, U.S. Secretary of State James Baker and Soviet Foreign Minister Eduard Shevardnadze joined their German, British and French colleagues in signing a treaty terminating Four Power occupation rights in the two German states, thus removing the last external obstacle to their full unification

U.S.-Soviet relations : from a "post-Cold war" to a "post-communism" era? by Arnold Lawrence Horelick( Book )

6 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 105 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper, the text of a presentation at the Aspen Institute Conference on U.S.-Soviet-East European Relations held in Budapest, Hungary, August 23-31, 1991, was written and distributed three weeks before the failed coup of August 19-21. The author notes that, for the Soviet Union in its new phase, the United States no longer represents its chief competitor in struggle for world supremacy, but rather the potentially decisive voice in organizing a Western rescue of a failing Soviet state. He discusses the changing U.S.-Soviet relationship, with emphasis on the declining role of arms control, opportunities for cooperation in shaping the "new world order," and the effect of U.S. policy on the future of the Soviet Union. He concludes that, no matter what prevailing Western convictions about economic development may be, U.S. vital interests in the future of the Soviet Union are not keyed to any particular model of the Soviet economy per se. What matters is that the Soviet economy should evolve in ways that do not make its viability dependent on authoritarian political structures or leave its assets and outputs too freely at the disposal of authoritarian rulers
The future of the Soviet Union : what is the Western interest? by Arnold Lawrence Horelick( Book )

6 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 104 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Following the Persian Gulf crisis, the West's attention has shifted to the ongoing crises in the Soviet Union. Uncertainty about the shape and character of the post-Cold War international system is dominated by uncertainty about the future of the Soviet Union--its political structure, economic system, territorial configuration, and ethno-national composition. Radically different outcomes could have vastly different consequences for the West. This paper explores the implications of some of the most widely discussed Soviet futures and examines the current Western debate on appropriate economic assistance policies for helping to shape a favorable Soviet outcome. Two major dichotomous possibilities dominate the Western debate: preservation of the Soviet Union essentially within its present borders and with a strong center representing it to the outside world; or chaotic disintegration of the Soviet state into multiple independent republics or clusters of republics. Virtually all Western governments have identified Western interests with preservation of the union, believing its breakup would have disastrously destabilizing consequences for the Soviet Union that would also pose grave threats to Western interests
The new Soviet political landscape : implications for economic aid policy by Arnold Lawrence Horelick( Book )

6 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 103 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper, the text of testimony before the U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee on September 26, 1991, reviews the implications of post-August-coup changes in the former Soviet Union for U.S. economic assistance policy. The author suggests that the Western world must be prepared in the short term to provide food and medical assistance on a more substantial scale than in the past and that such aid should be precisely targeted and distributed with the participation of government and private volunteer organizations from the sending countries. In addition, there must be an acceleration and expansion of the U.S. technical assistance program, including a large-scale exchange of people with practical business and technical skills. Such an exchange should involve students and practitioners from the various republics of the former Soviet Union coming to the United States. Finally, with more democratically and market-oriented leaders now in place in Russia and the other republics, the United States should be prepared to cooperate in and contribute to a program of assistance, including direct financial aid
Soviet foreign policy under Gorbachev by Arnold Lawrence Horelick( Book )

6 editions published in 1986 in English and Undetermined and held by 102 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This paper, reprinted from [National Security Issues of the USSR] (M. Feshbach, ed., Martinus Nijhoff Publishers, Dordrecht, The Netherlands, 1987), considers Soviet foreign policy under Gorbachev. Gorbachev's first priority in foreign policy is to consolidate weak or threatened positions. He will be selective about making new commitments and sensitive to the economic and political costs of making bad choices. He has initiated the most thorough and far-reaching reorganization of the Soviet foreign policymaking structure since World War II, and has blurred the division of labor between the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Communist Party's International Department. This restructuring indicates a downgrading in the priority of the Third World in Soviet foreign policy. The United States remains at the center of Gorbachev's foreign policy, and arms control at the center of his American policy. Failure by the United States and by the Western alliance to agree on a common strategy for dealing with the Soviet Union in the Gorbachev era could mean losing the opportunity either to pressure the Soviet Union effectively or to deal with it profitably."--Rand abstracts

Soviet policy dilemmas in Asia by Arnold Lawrence Horelick( Book )

6 editions published between 1970 and 1981 in English and held by 88 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Measured by conventional standards--states with which it has diplomatic relations, high-level visits, trade turnover, deployment of military forces in the area--the Soviet Union is now engaged in Asian affairs more widely than ever before. Yet this activity brings few tangible rewards. Moscow has not benefitted conspicuously from the post-Vietnam regroupment of Asian political forces, and does not seem positioned for major political gains soon. Unable to find takers for its Asian collective security system, the USSR might offer instead security selectively to locally embroiled Asian states seeking external sources of political-military support. Yet the probability now of external intervention in Asia depends more on the play of indigenous forces which neither the USSR nor other outside powers can reliably control
Stopping the decline in US-Russian relations by Robert D Blackwill( Book )

5 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 80 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

U.S.-Russian relations are poised to resume their drift toward mutual alienation in the face of NATO enlargement. Failure to halt the downward spiral soon will jeopardize arms control regimes and erode U.S.-Russian nonproliferation cooperation. If relations are to improve, the initiative will have to come from the American side. The authors state that the United States should broaden the context of enlargement so as to emphasize Russia's legitimate security interests and a role in managing European security. It should pursue an agreement on a NATO-Russian charter to institutionalize NATO-Russian security concerns. If some of the heat can be taken out of the NATO enlargement issue, it is possible the Russian leadership might come to support START II if modifications and incentives were forthcoming. The authors suggest a variety of ways to fix the Conventional Forces in Europe treaty to lower ceiling levels. The goal should be to move quickly, recognizing that June-July will bring the enlargement invitations

The Soviet Union's "Asian collective security" proposal : a club in search of members by Arnold Lawrence Horelick( Book )

3 editions published between 1970 and 1974 in English and held by 67 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A review of Soviet diplomatic maneuvers since June 1969 when General Secretary Brezhnev tersely proposed creating a system of collective security in Asia. Most observers speculated that the Soviets were seeking to organize an anti-China united front; others suggested that they were preparing to move into the vacuum created by the retraction of Western power from Southeast Asia. At first the Soviet purpose seemed clearly to elicit reactions from potential members of the "system." Grounds for optimism were few. But following his diplomatic successes in the Indo-Pakistan War, Brezhnev revived the proposal, this time elaborating lowest common denominator principles for membership. India and the small states of Southeast Asia have been special targets of Soviet blandishments, with little success. Thus far only Outer Mongolia and Iran have officially endorsed the Soviet proposal. China's violent opposition has caused both North Korea and North Vietnam to remain aloof and is regarded by the USSR as the major obstacle
The Soviet Union, the Middle East, and the evolving world energy situation by Arnold Lawrence Horelick( Book )

5 editions published between 1970 and 1973 in English and held by 67 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The basic self-sufficiency of the USSR in energy resources will provide Soviet leaders with far greater freedom of maneuver than their oil-deficient competitors. Whether they are likely to promote disruption or stability with respect to the flow of oil from the Middle East is the key question for the future. They cannot independently cause a major disruption in the world energy situation, but they can choose courses of action that could contribute toward exacerbating or alleviating the problem. Characteristics of a Soviet-preferred future world energy scenario might include a continuing gradual erosion of the Western oil companies' position in the Middle East and repeated temporary shortages in consumer states. Whether the USSR can benefit from such scenarios will depend on the success or failure of the United States, Western Europe, and Japan in forging a common energy policy to avoid a crisis
