About the unusual magazine World Affairs Report, information on subscriptions, subjects, and samples.



Subscription: Quarterly; $12 annually; Asian Languages Building, Room 250, Stanford University, Stanford, Calif. 94305; circulation 700.

Subject Matter: The World Affairs Report provides a detailed analysis of what the U.S.S.R. is doing and saying about world affairs, based primarily on Russian and other non-English sources, translated into English. In this way it is able to define the polarity between the U.S. and the U.S.S.R. and to indicate where all other countries stand in relation to this pattern.

Sample Materials: "The Soviet Union's European spy network was dealt a severe blow by the defection to Great Britain of former Tass correspondent Ilya Djirkelov, bringing important documents. Moscow immediately recalled large numbers of its agents in Europe. Djirkelov was press attache to the World Health Organization in Geneva, which the Daily Mail (London) described as the nerve center of Soviet espionage in Europe."

"Pravda spoke of serious discontent, especially among housewives unable to find common necessities, and demanded that managers produce more consumer goods."

"Poland: April is the month of national memory, devoted to recalling the horrors of Nazi occupation. Soviet propaganda harped on this, but without a word about the Hitler-Stalin pact, the partition of Poland, and Soviet annihilation of anti-Communists. It referred to the vicious, neofascist propaganda, apparently a reference to those who wish to raise the issue."
