Summary
Western interpretations of the Cold War--both realist and neoconservative--have erred by exaggerating either the Kremlin's pragmatism or its aggressiveness, argues the author. Explaining the interests, aspirations illusions, fears, and misperceptions of the Kremlin leaders and the Soviet elites, the author offers a Soviet perspective on the greatest standoff of the twentieth century
