“Oliver Bange and Poul Villaume have assembled an impressive group of young European historians of diverse backgrounds and perspectives and have produced an important contribution to our understanding of the origins and long lasting consequences of the European détente during the Cold War. The Long Détente, with its impressive multiarchival and multinational sources, challenge existing narratives which privilege the great power politics of the United States and the Soviet Union. These articles compel a reconsideration of détente's European roots and persistence. The book is first class scholarship with implications for contemporary diplomacy aswell.”
