International Law and the Brezhnev Doctrine

Little has been written on the relationship of international law to Soviet foreign policy. This volume tackles the subject in two parts. The first portion specifically considers the 'Brezhnev Doctrine' and the assault on the legal order. The second part examines Soviet attitudes toward the use of force in international relations. The authors hope to clarify the threat of war and its underlying theory in order to contribute to the process of outlawing this impermissible means of effecting international political change.
