"A valuable addition to the literature on Soviet foreign policy. . . . Terry has assembled a panel of well-known and knowledgeable scholars who, on the whole, have done a good job of approaching diverse material from a common perspective."—Choice

"Highly worthwhile for those studying Soviet-East European affairs.... It should prove a stimulating text both for students and for more advanced scholars. . . . Soviet Policy In Eastern Europe contains enough fresh insights and perceptive comments on recent developments to interest and provoke even the most knowledgeable specialist."—Mark N.  Kramer, Survival

"A full and rounded picture of Soviet-East European relations, particularly in the seventies. . . . An extremely useful volume."—Alex Pravda, Times Higher Education  Supplement

A "deeply researched, comprehensively thorough and . . . highly readable collection of essays." —Andrew Carter, World Today

"The volume includes both historical surveys of the USSR's policies toward individual countries and essays focusing on particular regional problems. . . .[it] clearly demonstrates that the Soviet leadership is perplexed and confused about developments within Eastern Europe,  has no fresh or imaginative ideas to deal with the problems of the region, and is evidently unwilling or unable to do more than muddle through from crisis to crisis."—Jonathan Harris, Annals of the American Academy of Political and Social Science

"A solid and comprehensive research study of Soviet policies toward communist Eastern Europe."—H. Gordon Skilling, Slavic Review

"An insightful treatment of the complexities of Soviet-East European relations and a reliable guide to current developments. . . . This volume sustains a high level of analytical prowess throughout."—Melvin Croan, Russian Review
