Abstract

The term “détente” describes the antagonistic cooperation between the capitalist-liberal states of the West and the communist-ruled countries of the Warsaw Pact during the Cold War. The goal of this  edited volume with contributions from 13 experts is to present the European perspective on the period of Cold War. The main argument that a 'long détente' existed between East and West, that lasted for good economic, security-political, societal reasons, and that it had a profound impact on the eventual outcome of the conflict between East and West and the quintessentially peaceful framework in which this 'endgame' was played. (Publisher)
