Abstract:

What are the strategic implications of glasnost and perestroika Is Mikhail Gorbachev embarked on a campaign of strategic deception, or on a crusade to lead the USSR into the age of modern technology Must the answer be one or the other, or is it possible he is doing both What kind of support does he need both at home and abroad How much time does he have to succeed And, if he does, what will be the impact on world order These questions represent a significant challenge. Gorbachev himself probably cannot provide accurate answers. He may personally be on a crusade however, the System may be executing the greatest strategic deception the West has ever seen.
