From Simon & Schuster, Soviet Power is Jonathan Steele's exploration on the Kremlin's foreign policy from Brezhnev to Chernenko.

This analysis points to a pattern of thwarted strategy and failed objectives, which has weakened the influence of the Soviet Union even while its military power has grown, but warns that the United States frequently misunderstands Soviet intentions and capabilities.
