Soviet Intervention in Czechoslovakia 1968 : anatomy of a decision / Jiri Valenta . Rev and Expanded edition

£7.99

Product description

Date of publication : 1991. Book condition : minimal wear on the edges. Tight, clean and unmarked on the inside. Synopsis: In this new edition of his highly acclaimed work, Jiri Valenta adds his assessment of Soviet military decision making in the 1980s to his earlier analysis of decision making and crisis management in the Soviet bureaucracy and Warsaw Pact. Comparing the events of 1968 to the Kremlin's very different reaction to reforms now under way in Czechoslovakia and the rest of Eastern Europe, Valenta shows that Soviet politics were never simple. The USSR's foreign policy response to the "Prague Spring," he contends, was the result of a complex political process conditioned by bureaucratic inertia, coalition politics, and East European pressures.
