    schema:description ""Drawing upon previously unpublished records of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, the Cabinet Office and the Ministry of Defence, this book focuses upon Britain's role in the early stages of the Mutual and Balanced Force Reductions (MBFR) talks in Vienna, and British policy towards the Soviet Union and its European satellites during an era of detente in East-West relations. The documents reveal both the suspicions of senior Whitehall officials regarding Soviet designs in Europe, and their doubts about the negotiating tactics and strategy of their American allies. With Washington still reeling from the Vietnam debacle, British diplomats initially saw the MBFR talks as a mechanism for helping the Nixon administration to stave off Congressional demands for cuts in US forces in Europe. They dismissed as a 'pipe dream' the notion that reductions in Western manpower numbers could be compatible with undiminished security for all, but hoped through participation in the talks to forestall any unnecessary weakening of NATO."--Jacket."@en ;
