Dissent and nationalism in the Soviet Baltic by Alex Alexiev ( Book )
4 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 146 libraries worldwide
Examines the evolution of Baltic dissent and nationalism in the 1970s and early 1980s, focusing on their determinants, significance, and potential for generating political instability in this important region of the Soviet Union. This is the region most directly affected by developments in Eastern Europe, and in turn it is the one most likely to affect Soviet policies in the area. The report focuses on Soviet policies and practices that are perceived as generating dissent and nationalist unrest in the Baltic republics and analyzes the scope and nature of, and constraints on, political and religious dissent there. Research for this study has included an extensive review of Western and Soviet literature and in-depth interviews with a number of recent emigres from the Baltic. 47 pp. Bibliog.

Soviet nationalities in German wartime strategy, 1941-1945 by Alex Alexiev ( Book )
6 editions published between 1982 and 1983 in English and Undetermined and held by 137 libraries worldwide
This study examines the determinants and character of German policies toward the Soviet non-Russian nationalities and their effects on the Soviet and German war efforts and on the nationalities themselves. Particular emphasis is placed on the analysis of the nature and magnitude of military collaboration with the Germans by the non-Russian nationalities, in an attempt to examine the military exploitability of the political warfare opportunities that presented themselves. Section II outlines the attitudes toward the Soviet nationalities prevalent among the Nazi leadership and the role envisaged for them in a postwar German-dominated Europe, and juxtaposes them on the views of German officials who did not share Nazi dogma and advocated a more pragmatic approach. German policies in the occupied non-Russian territories and their implications are examined in Sec. III. Section IV describes the different types and degrees of military collaboration with the Germans. The main conclusions are summarized in Sec. V.

East European military reliability : an émigré-based assessment by Alex Alexiev ( Book )
3 editions published in 1986 in English and Undetermined and held by 121 libraries worldwide
"This report presents the results of a study based on RAND interviews with former East European servicemen now in the West. The study examined the prospective wartime reliability for the Soviet Union of the East European armies incorporated in the Warsaw Pact, in particular those of Poland, East Germany, and Czechoslovakia. It focuses on specific factors (such as organizational and operational incentives and alliance constraints) that would enhance or detract from reliability and considers whether and how they have changed over time. The findings suggest that, while many features of non-Soviet Warsaw Pact (NSWP) militaries have remained constant over the past 25 years, this reliability is fragile, for it rests in part on the containment and suppression of group and individual dissatisfactions that are likely to reemerge in times of political turmoil or crisis. Moreover, the changes that have taken place in NSWP armies over the past 25 years have been in the direction of reducing rather than enhancing reliability."--Rand abstracts.
