East-West Relations: Prospects for the 1980s

Papers presented at a conference organized by the De Gasperi Institute of European Studies in Rome. The contributors are Western and Eastern Europeans leavened by the presence of one American and one Japanese. The papers, though too brief to provide much substance, give evidence of a generally shared hope of advancing and deepening economic ties between the two halves of Europe, including formal agreements between the EEC and CMEA. It is an interesting point, considering the fact that the conference met in 1980 under the impact of the Soviet move into Afghanistan and the world reaction to it.
