Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Govrin, former Israeli diplomat in Moscow and research fellow at the Hebrew University, Jerusalem, addresses the period ranging from the first severance of Israeli-Soviet relations in the last stage of Stalin's rule through their renewal, shortly after his death in 1953, to their being severed again under Brezhnev's rule in 1967. He examines the confrontation in the context of the political and ideological motivations of each country, focusing on trade, cultural relations, and emigration issues. Paper edition (unseen), $27.50. Distributed by ISBS. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
