Soviet-American Relations: The Detente Years, 1969-1972

Publisher: State Dept., Bureau of Public Affairs, Office of the Historian

Description: This official joint documentary publication presents the formerly secret record of how the United States and Soviet Union moved from Cold War to détente during 1969-1972. Published side-by side are U.S. and Soviet accounts of meetings between Henry Kissinger and Soviet Ambassador Anatoliy Dobrynin (the so-called Kissinger-Dobrynin confidential channel), related documents, and the full Soviet and U.S. record of the first Moscow Summit between President Richard Nixon and Soviet Secretary General Leonid Brezhnev. The Soviet documents are being released in the volume for the first time anywhere. Scholars, journalists, and the public have the unique opportunity to compare the Soviet and U.S. independent accounts of a crucial foreign policy dialogue and process. This important new book, which includes a specially-written Foreword by Henry Kissinger, is an indispensable source for those who wish to understand firsthand, through the original documents, the dynamic relationship between the two Cold War superpowers at a critical point in their history.
