This paper examines selected writings of Soviet academician Rostislav Ulianovsky on Soviet policy toward the Third World, particularly Third World countries seeking to become authentic socialist states. Ulianovsky's writings have reflected important changes in Soviet policy and practice more accurately than those of any other Soviet scholar. His highly theoretical views have evolved over the years, and he now seems to advocate restraint rather than aggression in seeking Third World partners. The author quotes Ulianovsky's writings from the past 25 years and includes a bibliography of selected books and articles.
