Konflikt und Kooperation zwischen Ost und West
Konflikt und Kooperation zwischen Ost und West
By Gerhard Wettig
Osang Verlag, 1981, 217 pp

With characteristic thoroughness, drawing on all the pertinent Western and Soviet writings, Wettig gives a review and critique of the concepts which have marked the course of East-West and particularly U.S.-Soviet relations since World War II: deterrence, détente, coexistence, strategic stability and so on. He is honest and fair in describing the various theories and always coolly skeptical in his own evaluation.
