About the Authors
  • This volume brings together empirical and analytical studies of the nature and evolution of Soviet-British relations during the 1980s. The relationship is placed within the wider context of Soviet policy towards the West and NATO and the pivotal security role played by Britain between the United States and its West European allies. The contributors examine the historical background; mutual perceptions and policy perspectives; Soviet and British interests, objectives and concerns; and the role of economic, political, diplomatic, non-governmental and security factors in shaping the overall relationship. A concluding section evaluates trends in relations throughout the 1980s. The work of specialists on Soviet and British policies, Soviet-British Relations since the 1970s provides perspectives for policy-makers and academic specialists concerned with Soviet and British foreign and defence policy, as well as security and international affairs.
