This paper is an analysis of Morskoy Sbornik with an emphasis on history, missions and Soviet perceptions. First there is a discussion of Morskoy Sbornik's history, starting with the Czarist period and then following it through the period of the October Revolution. Following this is an examination of Morskoy Sbornik's missions which are: first, to foster a unity of views; second, to serve as a forum for debate; and third, to disseminate useful information. Next, Morskoy Sbornik is compared and contrasted to U.S. Naval Institute Proceedings. Differences result because Proceedings is a private organization whereas Morskoy Sbornik is an official organ of the Soviet Union, which serves the purposes of the state. Last, the paper examines writings in Morskoy Sbornik on three topics to define Soviet viewpionts from what is published. The three topics examined are: the maritime threat; command and control in the Soviet Navy; and the commanding officer.
