Abstract:

The best hope for peace is successful negotiations for arms control with the Soviets. These have been less than successful because Americans and Soviets do not understand one anothers language. This peculiar understanding is based on the completely different structure of his society and understanding of the US MIC Military Industrial Complex. The Soviet and US MICs were examined from the point of view of the USSR and an attempt was made to show the bias of the Soviet negotiator as a result of his being reared as an integral part of a MISC. The author shows that an attempt must be made to understand the Soviet negotiators on their own terms rather than in terms of US society.
