DEALING WITH DICTATORS

Dealing with Dictators, László Borhi's new book with IU Press, explores America’s Cold War efforts to make the dictatorships of Eastern Europe less tyrannical and more responsive to the country’s international interests. During this period, US policies were a mix of economic and psychological warfare, subversion, cultural and economic penetration, and coercive diplomacy.
