Frieden durch Kommunikation. Das System Genscher und die Entspannungspolitik im Zweiten Kalten Krieg 1979–1982/83
Bresselau von Bressensdorf, Agnes
At the end of the 1970s West Germany`s foreign minister Genscher faced the challenge of defending the Social-Liberal coalition`s policy of dètente against the approaching Second Cold War.‎ The unique features of his communication policy were demonstrated in his responses to the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan and the Polish crisis. The author sees the basis for his long-term success as stemming from a specific Genscher system.
