This newly released volume, the final of five covering relations between the United States and the Soviet Union during  the Nixon-Ford administrations, sheds new light on how matters as diverse as strategic arms limitation, European security, the Middle East, Jewish emigration, and Angola intersected to influence the course of Soviet-American relations during the presidency of Gerald R.
