Abstract:

In view of their militant ideology and political opportunism, do the Soviets really seek disarmament or do such policy statements have other purposes. And more specifically, what role does disarmament policy have in the whole range of Soviet policy objectives. These two questions are discussed in terms of Soviet objectives a the distant goal of world communism, as determined by the ideology, and b the more immediate and pragmatic strategic and tactical objectives related to the conduct of current policy.
