Abstract:

The thesis of the paper is that the states of Europe, East and West, are moving toward a new European security system which the two superpowers may be unable to shape or prevent. The process whereby this is occurring is an outgrowth of the detente between the Soviet Union and the United States and the corresponding detente in Europe. Its cornerstone is the realization, consciously shared by the United States and the Soviet Union, that no conflict can be permitted which might embroil the superpowers with each other. It is this security guarantee which permits the Europeans to pursue in safety policies designed to bring about gradual changes in the status quo. The paper consists of two parts a statement of a hypothesis about detente and European security, and a review and analysis of Yugoslav support for that hypothesis. Author
