This study brings a valuable perspective to the important issue of Cold War politics on American Soviet trade policy over the past forty years. Generally, American presidents from Truman through Reagan have been more sophisticated than Congress or the public in their approach to trade policies with the USSR and the Communist bloc. The author is particularly critical of Congress, where anti-Communist sentiment resulted in restrictive trade measures that limited the Executive's flexibility in economic policy.
