Putting Up with the Russians

Edward Crankshaw, Author Penguin Books $7.95 (269p) ISBN 978-0-14-008402-3
A collection of columns and book excerpts that covers the period from 1947 to Crankshaw's death last year, this volume contains shrewd observations. For one, Crankshaw writes that the Soviet Union is not a new system but ""Eternal Russia under a new management.'' For another, he maintains that Soviet foreign policy is predicated on the Tsarist tradition of fear of the West and a need for material from the West. PW called Crankshaw's viewpoint ``striking.''
