Description - Perestroika by Tsuyoshi Hasegawa

This book brings together both European and Japanese specialists on the USSR to examine the major dimensions of perestroika which have a bearing on the close and complex interaction betweeen Soviet domestic and foreign policy. Assessing the revolutionary changes taking place in Soviet internal and external policies, the authors focus on the roots, scope, depth and dynamics of change. The initial chapters examine the historical context of perestroika, and the progress made towards civil society and political democracy. Developments in the political arena contrast increasingly with mounting problems on the economic front which form the subject of the central section of this book. Here, leading analysts examine the country's domestic affairs, gauge the prospects of the Soviet Union playing a larger part in the international economy and consider the ramifications of fast-changing patterns of defence industry and military developments. The last part of the volume centres on key aspects of foreign policy change. The authors trace the evolution of innovative thinking, evaluate its current "novelty" and review the shifting contours of Soviet policy in Europe and Asia.
