Overview

This collection of 155 previously secret documents from the archives of every member state of the communist military grouping provides a record of the Soviet-led Cold War Alliance. Top-level communications between the alliance's leaders, verbatim transcripts of multilateral summit meetings, and lively discussions inside the various party politburos reveal features of the evolution of the Warsaw Pact from a stage prop to a full-fledged military alliance, the surprisingly dynamic relations between Moscow and the other capitals particularly during crises, and the upheavals of the late 1980s that brought down the whole house of cards. They are all in English. Distributed in the US by Books International. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
