Volume 6: Secret Services and International Arms Trade in the Cold War Era

Edited by William Glenn Gray and Thomas Schlemmer

Secret services and international arms trade in the Cold War era are the crucial issues of the sixth volume of the German Yearbook of Contemporary History. In presenting a series of translated articles on statecraft and commercial policy in German-speaking Central Europe, the editors aim to acquaint readers with dilemmas that continue to overshadow German (and Austrian) engagement with the world. Historical research is not a perfect guide to the present, but there is a certain logic to the workings of the international system, and readers of this volume will be better equipped to discern that logic.
