Abstract

This book sets out to discuss what has been termed as the 'second Cold War, ' that is, the deterioration of superpower-relations in the late 1970s and 1980s. Its goal is to present the European perspective on this period. It argues that a 'long détente' existed between East and West, that it existed and lasted for good (economic, security-political, societal) reason, 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.
