A series of up-to-date but on the whole conventional essays on European perceptions and policies concerning detente, emphasizing the special relations of the two Germanies to the East-West conflict. The Helsinki agreements are central to the discussions, and the success of the Europeans via the European Political Cooperation to coordinate post-Helsinki policies is also stressed. According to most of the contributors, the Europeans see in détente a means of strengthening the ties among the historic states of Western and Eastern Europe, and the Soviets have a certain cautious interest in promoting this growing sense of European identity.
