Abstract:

This memorandum identifies and discusses some of the more often cited assumptions concerning Soviet behavior in the Third World in an attempt to assess the implications of Soviet behavior for US foreign policy. The author concludes that if the United States wishes to formulate a rational and developed approach to Soviet involvement in the Third World, in the future it must begin with a more refined analysis of Soviet opportunities, capabilities, advantages, and disadvantages.
