New Yorker;11/6/1978, Vol. 54 Issue 38, p172
The author reflects on the Soviet Union government and its relation with the U.S. He argues that the foreign policy of the U.S. tends to assume that the Soviet government is illegitimate and the Russian people is in need of liberation. He suggests that the argument about the Soviet Union and the argument about the U.S. should be separated.
