How Statesmen Think in the Soviet Union and the United States

Discuss the distinction between the values of the Soviet Union and the United States.

“First, each – Soviet Union & United States – implied a form of universalism in that there was nothing unique about the country that meant its values could not be spread” (Jervis, 2017, p. 171). In his “How Statesmen Think: The Psychology of International Politics,” Robert Jervis continues by observing that though certain countries have a specific national identity, that identity does not demand that all other countries follow this example.
