About the Edition

This thesis examines the potential role of the Supreme Soviet and its Committee for Questions of Defense and State Security (KOGB) in the formation of Soviet defense policy. Important events leading to the creation of the new Supreme Soviet and opening-session debates on the appointment of the USSR Defense Minister and release of students from service in the Armed Forces are reviewed. The role of the KOGB in determining Soviet defense spending and military reform are also examined. The thesis concludes with an examination of the problems facing the KOGB, and points out that significant military reform will likely emerge from the Supreme Soviet should positive trends in Soviet political reform continue.
