Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

As director for European affairs at the National Security Council in 1989-92, Robert Hutchings was at the heart of U.S. policymaking toward Europe and the Soviet Union during the dizzyingly fast dissolution of the Soviet bloc. Hutchings adds a scholar's balanced judgment and historical perspective to his insider's view from the White House as he reconstructs how things looked to policymakers in the United States and in Europe, describes how and why decisions were made, and critically examines those decisions in the light of what can now be known. He assesses the critical support of U.S. diplomacy for the East European revolutions and the unification of Germany - offering fascinating character sketches along the way - and describes how U.S. relations with Moscow were managed up to the collapse of the USSR. Hutchings also discusses the difficulties in forging a post-cold war European order and U.S. failures in dealing with a disintegrating Yugoslavia.

Book News Annotation:

Hutchings, the former director for European affairs at the National Security Council from 1989 to 1992, offers a well-balanced insider account of US policies toward the Soviet Union and Europe during and after the revolutions of 1989. Hutchings gives vivid personality sketches of the players from a scholarly perspective as he describes the events leading to the end of the Cold War, US diplomacy decisions during Germany's unification, and US failures in adequately dealing with Yugoslavia. CiP shows the dates as 1982-1992 instead of 1989- 1992.
