Abstract:

The paper seeks to order the central trends and forces acting on detente into the 1990s. Viewing the future as history, two metaphorical constructs--the spaceship and the lifeboat--are developed within whose contrasting perspectives will be played out the main drama of detente and whose creative tensions will largely determine its course into the 1990s.
