There is also a need to look into why the Cold War did not become more heated, and how it was finally overcome. Wilfried Loths book examines both these issues. It is a story of the containment of the Cold War, of detente, of the development of cooperative security, and of the changes in the Soviet bloc. It begins with the Soviet Stalin Notes of the spring of 1952, and ends with the signature of the START Treaty in July 1991. In between, there were many setbacks but over and over again there were also new initiatives that helped to overcome fear and pave the way for freedom. The book offers much new information taken from Eastern and Western archives and for the first time draws a precise overall picture of how the Cold War was overcome.
