The end of World War II created a new international order with new sets of conflicts and concerns. A divided Europe became largely dependent upon two non-European superpowers with profoundly competing economic, political, and religious values. Unable to agree on a unilateral peace treaty, the power blocs accepted a de facto settlement which reflected the new balance of power. That de facto agreement has endured, despite continual tension and the ever-present threat of nuclear war, for more than four decades.

Now the postwar “cold peace” is beginning to show signs of strain. In this collection of informed and intelligent essays, international scholars take a focused look at this impending breach, examining the scenario of a sudden eruption in conflicts, which could thrust Europe and the world into a period of chaos and war. Specific topics covered include such volatile issues as Germany’s reunification aspirations, post-war settlements from Communist Poland’s point of view, the impact of President Reagan’s Strategic Defense Initiative on the future of the Western alliance, and much more.
