Reluctant cold warriors, economists and national security, Vladimir Kontorovich

Abstract
During the Cold War, Western economic studies of the USSR neglected the military sector of the Soviet economy. Were economic Sovietologists under political pressure, and if so, in what direction? This book has broad relevance for national security uses of social science research today.--Adapted from dust jacket
