From the Editors of Social Sciences: In early July 1989 Moscow hosted a Soviet-U.S. Symposium on “Political Reforms and Political Science” attended by the leading politologists of the two countries. On July 6, within the framework of that forum, U.S. politologists met with Vladimir Petrovsky, Deputy Foreign Minister of the USSR, who is a member of the Soviet Political Science Association Executive Council and member of the Editorial Council of Social Sciences. The following is a summary report of the discussion which, as our U.S. colleagues suggested, centered on the new political thinking. This topic was the starting point in the discussion attended by L. W. Pye, President of the American Political Science Association (head of the U.S. delegation), Catherine E. Rudder, Samuel P. Huntington, Kenneth N. Waltz, Richard F. Fenno, and Alexander Dallin. Also present were William Smirnov, Vice-President of the International and Soviet Political Science Associations; Ninel Maslova, Deputy Editor-in-Chief of Social Sciences, and a number of officials from the USSR Ministry for Foreign Affairs.
