This book provides new and exceptional interpretations in regard to the post-World War 2 history of the East-West conflict and calls for interdisciplinary approaches in analyzing international relations. The systematic and political processes are undoing the division of Europe and restoring an 'organically' interdependent continent. The events of 1989 in Eastern Europe are but a harbinger of a new security order in Europe and, for the first time since the Treaty of Westphalia of 1648 Europe tries to look beyond state-centered concepts of security. - Google Books
"Alpo Rusi Rusi, a Finnish diplomat and scholar, point wisely to the future of the Soviet Union as the looming uncertainty, though neither can know-nor can we-how far Europe's institutions will or should stretch to deal with Soviet disintegration. Rusi's book is more a history of détente than an architecture for the future. He foresees a long period of transition, of "conflictual peace" in Europe, yet he is hopeful that the Conference on Security and Cooperation in Europe can become Europe's confederation." - Foreign Affairs, 1991
