Abstract

II. Internal Repercussions from the Flow of Western Technology and Ideas In the afternoon session the Workshop focused on the economic and poli- tical ramifications of the transfer of Western technology to the Soviet Union, with John Hardt leading the discussion of a paper by Frederic Fleron.
