Abstract:

Just as the current situation in Eastern Europe is unprecedented in the post-World War II era, so too is the challenge that it poses to the security of the USSR. The newness of this challenge derives from its multiple dimensions- political, ideological, economic, and military. Moreover, the complexity of the challenge renders it much more difficult to cope with than any that Soviet leaders have faced in the region before. To appreciate the nature of the challenge and the dilemmas it creates for Moscow, it is essential to explore the meaning of the present East European crisis from the Soviet standpoint. This can best be done in terms of the potential political, ideological, economic, and military effects of the crisis on the USSR.
