Organizations Involved in Soviet-American Relations. Handbook.
Forum Inst., Washington, DC.
Non-governmental U.S. organizations involved in U.S.-USSR studies and exchange activities are described. A total of 187 groups identified as being engaged to some degree in Soviet-American work were sent questionnaires. The response rate was 70 percent. Descriptions of the 131 responding groups are provided in organizational profiles that comprise the major portion of the publication. Information is provided concerning organization activities involving the United States and Russia, staff time and budget devoted to U.S.-USSR activities, the nature and extent of contact between the group and Soviet organizations, and publications relating to U.S.-USSR relations. A summary analysis of the information collected is also presented. For example, 53 of the organizations are involved with exchange programs, 46 with public education, 25 with teaching and research, and 7 with national/international policy. Most work on very small budgets. The appendices contain the names and addresses of all organizations surveyed, cross references of organizations by types of activities, a report on U.S. government activities with the USSR, and the survey form.
