Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Analyzes the process through which the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan acquired historical significance for British and American Soviet policy, focusing on British and American perceptions of the invasion as a challenge to Western security. Investigates the political mechanisms though which those perceptions were translated into action, and discusses in detail the Anglo-American dimension of the two countries' responses, looking at the development of European security identity and the viability of the Special Relationship in the modern international system. Distributed by Ashgate. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
