Focusing on the relationship between the Soviet Union and the leading Afro-Asian neutralists, Professor Rubinstein studies Soviet policy and behavior in international organizations concerned with promoting the economic and social welfare of developing countries. He has made a thorough examination of the records of many such organizations, including the Economic and Social Council, the Technical Assistance Committee, and the International Labor Organization. To gain insight into the conduct and objectives of Soviet representatives at meetings of these groups, and into the behavior of Soviet nationals employed in international secretariats, the author undertook extensive interviewing of neutralist, Communist, and Western officials in New York, Geneva, Vienna, Bangkok, and New Delhi.

Imperial decline : Russia's changing role in Asia( Book )

5 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 293 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The essays in Imperial Decline describe the major changes that have occurred in Russia's relations with China, Japan, and South Korea under Boris Yeltsin's presidency, with speculation about both Russia's future in the region and the impact this future could have on relations with the United States. Contributors to this volume demonstrate how incoherent taxation and investment, uncoordinated and contradictory economic policies, runaway inflation and currency instability, and problems of defense now constrain the possibility of Russia expanding its economic influence in Asia. This book is essential for students and scholars of international relations, foreign policy, and Russian history

The Soviet Union's foreign policy environment to the year 2000 : paper prepared for delivery at the Conference on "The Soviet military in the year 2000" organized by the Naval War College, January 21-22, 1987 by Alvin Z Rubinstein( Book )

3 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The advent of the Gorbachev era invites comparision with the Khrushchev era years ago. Both leaders were confronted by major domestic and foreign policy problems, dilemmas, and choices. The similarities are striking: the struggle for power at a time mounting economic and political dilemmas; the quest for rationalization of Soviet-East European economic relationships, subject to Moscow's continued control; the need to improve relations with the United States; the readiness to pursue Soviet objectives in the Third World irrespective of their adverse consequences for Soviet-American relations. The differences are significant and intensify Gorbachev's problem: Gorbachev's USSR is far stronger than Khrushchev's and is a credible nuclear power; Gorbachev has many more options in the Third World; the Far East is a major foreign policy issue; and U.S. influence in the international system is less in the 1980s than it was in the 1950s. The thrust of this analysis is toward essential continuity in the decade or so ahead. The Kremlin is confronted with growing domestic problems, but in foreign policy the following aims seem likely: preservation of the imperial system in Eastern Europe; improved relations with the United States, including arms control agreements if possible; normalization of ties with China and Japan; and competitive rivalry with the United States in the Third World

NATO Enlargement vs. American Interests by Alvin Z Rubinstein( )

2 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper argues that the decision to accelerate the timetable for NATO's expansion was based neither on strategic logic nor military threat, but was domestically driven. It addresses the issues raised by the enlargement: the costs; the effect on US-Russia relations; the strengthening of security and democratisation in Europe; the strategic, political and financial interests of the United States itself; the German factor; and the asymmetry between US interests and those of Western Europe.--SCAD summary
