The Soviet Union in the Third World : successes and failures by Joseph L Nogee( Book )

19 editions published between 1980 and 1982 in English and held by 847 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This memorandum, based upon the contents of the papers presented at the 1979 Military Policy Symposium on the Soviet Union in the Third World, identifies those conclusions upon which there is a consensus and notes those where significant differences exist concerning the successes and failures of Soviet policy in the Third World. From his analysis of the papers the author concludes that in the long run the United States is in a better position than the Soviet Union to influence the outcome of events in the Third World.

The Soviet-Indian alignment : quest for influence by Robert H Donaldson( Book )

13 editions published between 1979 and 1981 in English and held by 263 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Soviet Union has invested in India a large volume of material resources and diplomatic energy; the available evidence on the Soviet-Indian relationship in recent years, however, leads to the conclusion that the return of this Soviet investment, in terms of observable political influence, has been small. Since 1967, there appear to have been only three cases in which Moscow was able to cause New Delhi to do something which it would not have done otherwise. In the overwhelming majority of cases, the Soviet Union has been rebuffed in its efforts to influence Indian behavior. In some cases there is an evident and mutual disposition to discuss differences in private to limit the impact of disagreements on a relationship both sides value highly. Indian decision makers perceive a well-defined need for Soviet support in both military and economic spheres, but India's growing self-reliance places definite limits on her perceived need of the Soviet Union. For its part, Moscow perceives that the special relationship with India has brought diplomatic and commercial benefits which the Soviets are reluctant to jeopardize. The evolution of Indo-Soviet relations has resulted in a symbiosis, but one in which the balance of dependency has changed dramatically. Developments since 1971 suggest that Soviet importance to India and its ability to influence Indian decisions peaked during the Indo-Pakistan crisis and have subsequently declined, whereas the Indian ability to exert influence in Moscow may be growing
Soviet conceptions of "security" by Robert H Donaldson( Book )

4 editions published between 1980 and 1983 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This memorandum explores how Soviet leaders perceive their country's 'security.' The author contends that the dominant Soviet image of security requirements is not markedly different from perceptions that US leaders have of America's security requirements. For both countries, 'security' means far more than simple physical survival, but also includes elements of economic well-being and internal political stability, as well as the preservation of fundamental alliances. He concludes that it is not yet certain that either the United States or the Soviet Union will be willing to abandon the quest for an 'absolute security' founded on an equal insecurity for the other power
The second world, the third world and the new economic order by Army War College (U.S.)( Book )

3 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

After an initial sketch of the history of the North-South dialogue and the key issues raised in the platform for a New International Economic Order, this memorandum explores the interests and objectives--economic, political, and ideological--that have motivated Soviet behavior in the major forums of this international dialogue. Next it analyzes the official Soviet position on particular issues in the North-South conflict. How the Soviet stand has been perceived by the Third World, and how Moscow's actual record in bilateral transactions with less-developed countries compares with its official positions is the subject of the next section. The memorandum closes with an inquiry into the prospects for change in the Soviet position, assessing the successes and failures of the current Soviet stance and the likely costs and benefits--both for the USSR and for the future of the North-South dialogue--or alternative Soviet strategies.

Soviet strategy in the 1970's and beyond by Robert H Donaldson( Book )

2 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Emerging global multipolarity, strategic parity, and a stagnant economy impelled the Soviet Union toward a policy of detente at the beginning of the decade. However, countervailing pressures from the 'military-industrial complex' have produced ambiguities and contradictions. Soviet detente policy continues the struggle with 'imperialism' and emphasizes vigilance against 'ideological subversion.' It emphasizes the need for military strength and is ambivalent regarding arms control. Moscow perceives detente as contributing to the successes of Communist parties and national-liberation movements. Soviet and American conceptions of detente differ. The USSR hopes to avoid nuclear confrontation, to acquire US trade and technology, and to prevent Sino-US collusion. It does not share the US views on 'linkage' and self-restraint in the third world. Soviet policy options have been limited by the Sino-Soviet conflict, the challenge of 'Eurocommunism, ' and setbacks in the third world. There is no reason to anticipate that Soviet leadership change will bring dramatic foreign policy change. A 'sober' detente with the West will be pursued, though ideology; clashing national interests, and domestic control requirements place limits on how far the Soviet-US rivalry can be limited or their cooperation extended.

Liberalism's last hurrah : the presidential campaign of 1964 by Gary Donaldson( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Marked by sharp ideological divisions over civil rights, Vietnam, and federal power, the 1964 presidential campaign between Democrat Lyndon Johnson and Republican Barry Goldwater proved a watershed election in American history. Although Johnson defeated Goldwater in a landslide and liberalism seemed to ride triumphant, the liberal wave crashed almost immediately and conservatives came to dominate a resurgent Republican Party in the late twentieth century. Thoroughly researched and beautifully written, this is the first historical account of this crucial election, and the transition it marked f
