Place_Pub: Washington, DC: GPO, 1987. Sixth Edition. 159, wraps, illus., maps. The 1987 edition provides an updated report on the USSR's strategic defense program, a program that over the past 10 years has cost the Soviets the equivalent of some $200 billion for all types of defensive weapon systems and supporting subsystems. This is part of the evidence of the success of the Reagan Administration's policies which eventually helped bankrupt the Soviet Union and led inexorably to the fall of the Evil Empire and the end of the Cold War. Condition: very good.
