Publishers Weekly, 1986-05-23 The former national security adviser in the Carter administration offers a practical long-range guide to policy and action in the U.S.-Soviet rivalry, which, he writes, ``has been transformed into an endless `game,' with no victory in sight.'' Brzezinski's game plan assumes that the central priority is the struggle for Eurasia, which he divides into three strategic fronts: Europe, the Far East and Southwest Asia (with a possible fourth on the Rio Grande in the future, should the struggle for Central America enlarge in such a way as to inflame the U.S.-Mexican relationshipa development the Soviets would certainly exploit, according to Brzezinski). Among his recommendations: gradual reduction of American forces in NATO combined with pressure from Washington for a more self-reliant Europe. Game Plan is well organized and clearly written, and should be read by anyone who wants to take a short course in the interaction between geopolitics and strategy in the U.S.-Soviet contest, as taught by a first-rate teacher. Brzezinski is on the faculty at both Columbia and Georgetown. (June 27) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved
