Europe Between the Superpowers: The Enduring Balance

By A. W. DePorte
Yale University Press, 1979
288 pp. $18.50
Purchase

DePorte has little patience with those who consider the present balance in Europe unstable and transitory. Taking the long view, he notes that the system has withstood successive challenges, and he sees no reason why it cannot survive indefinitely, since it serves the interests of the states that have the power to change it. A stimulating, original work, a model of how a historical approach may enlarge our understanding of the present.
