In Foreign Policies of the Soviet Union, Richard F. Staar places revolutionary contemporary events into historical perspective. Citing Russian-language sources, he charts the recent structural changes within the USSR and how they have affected foreign policy. Detailing the shift of power from the CPSU political bureau to the presidential council, he explores the increasing importance of the foreign affairs ministry in the exercise of presidential power.
