Ending the Cold War: The Soviet Retreat and the US Military Buildup

Abstract

In the decade preceding the epochal reversal in Soviet foreign policy, the United States vastly increased its military spending, largely to counter Soviet power. This article examines the claim that the US military buildup stimulated increases in the Soviet military budget which ultimately bankrupted the Soviet Union and won the Cold War for the West. It finds that there is no demonstrable relationship between the US increases and the Soviet foreign policy reversal.
