This volume features a detailed examination of the perspectives and actions of both the United States and the Soviet Union and their interactions, including the inter-relationships of domestic factors with foreign and security policies in both countries, and the involvements of both powers with allies and other countries around the world, that infringed on their direct relationship. Besides analyzing the turn from confrontation to detente and beyond, over the years of the Reagan and Bush administrations, and from Brezhnev through Gorbachev, it reflects on the significance of the great transition from the Cold War to a new era. It thus illuminates the very relevant history that underlines and informs American-Russian relations and the new situation of a post-Soviet, post-Cold War world.

Review:

"This book becomes at once the best single starting point for every one who wants to understand better the extraordinary story of the ending of the Cold War, from 1981 through 1991. Garthoff builds on a life time of experience and study, and also on the running start of his masterwork on the 197s, "D?tente and Confrontation". A great subject has found the best possible student." --McGeorge Bundy, Former Special Assistant for National Security Affairs, Carnegie Corporation of New York "Garthoff has done it again, bringing us a worthy sequel to his grand account of the years of Soviet-American d?tente and confrontation. "The Great Transition" will serve for a long time to come as a towering, authoritative sourcebook for anyone who would begin to understand the great historical convulsion that put an end to the Cold War." --Michael R. Beschloss, Auhtor of "The Crisis Years: Kennedy and Khrushchev, 1960-1963 "Promises to be the authoritative record of U.S.-Soviet relations in the 1980s, and of the convulsions that put an end to the Cold War." -- "Choice"
