Limited War Revisited

Front Cover
Avalon Publishing, Oct 2, 1979 - Political Science - 124 pages
In this elegant and carefully woven essay, Osgood reviews the "lessons" of Vietnam and their limits. But more interesting is his sophisticated discussion of the implications, for the limited use of force, of the Soviet Union's growing tendency to exploit conflicts in the Third World, and the need to contain this trend.
