This paper is a reply to comments made by G. A. Trofimenko ("New Realities and New Thinking," USA, February 1987) on the authors' article, "Superpower Balancing Acts," which appeared in Foreign Affairs, Vol. 64, No. 3. The authors discuss Soviet "new thinking," its manifestations in Soviet actions, and its implications for Soviet foreign relations and for U.S.-Soviet relations.
