Abstract

The recognition of a theoretical link between the foreign policies of different states provides the basis for this study. A framework suitable for analyzing comparative foreign policy formulation is used to examine the years immediately following NATO's dual-track missile decision of 1979. It is hypothesized that the Soviet Union is capable of penetrating and influencing the foreign policy-making process in West Germany and Great Britain by affecting public attitudes in both countries. Soviet actions directed toward West Germany and Great Britain between 1979 and 1983 are added to models that explain public support for incumbent leaders. By demonstrating a causal link between public support and external variables, this study presents evidence that the policy process in the West can be affected by Soviet actions directed toward it.
