“Shifting the focus to European nations and societies, this work takes the Old Continent as the heart of the analysis, making it not a passive instrument in the hands of the two superpowers, but rather a fully-fledged actor in East-West relations. Studying détente in its many facets (strategic, geopolitical, economic and social), The Long Détente also refines the chronology and stresses the interaction between foreign policies and domestic priorities. It offers a stimulating and quite novel interpretation of East-West relations.”
