Abstract:

This study addresses four primary questions How frequently and in what contexts do the Soviets discuss U.S. ASW capabilities How have the frequency and nature of Soviet commentaries on the subject changed What U.S. ASW programs are the particular focus of Soviet commentary What is the Soviet perception of U.S. anti-submarine warfare capabilities and how has it changed over the period 1960 - 1980 Answers to these and related questions have been derived from qualitative and quantitative content analyses of Soviet open-source national security publications. The commentaries sampled in the analyses - spanning the years 1960 to 1980 - represent the views of naval, military, and partygovernment leaders and spokesmen. Author
