It is a study of diplomatic history, mainly covering British policy towards the Soviet Union during the period between the opening of hostilities between Germany and the Soviet Union in June 1941 and the visit to Moscow by Foreign Secretary Anthony Eden's delegtion in December of the same year. By using primary source data from the Public Records Office in London it analyzes the policy objectives and the policy-making process of the time." - from dust-jacket blurb.
