This book is a fascinating description of a decisive East-West conference which opened the road to detente and disarmament. It is written by a leading Soviet diplomat with a lot of insight into the Soviet hierarchy and a very experienced American military diplomat who was able to convince the Pentagon. It offers a brilliant insight into the dramatic change in the Soviet Union when Gorbachev took over and opened the doors to a new era. - Ambassador Dr. Klaus J. Citron head of Bonn's delegation to the Stockholm Conference In 1986, the first West-East agreement establishing the right for reciprocal on-site inspections was reached in Stockholm. Making Peace: Confidence and Security in a New Europe is an insider's account of how that agreement was negotiated within the framework of the Conference on Security and Cooperation in Europe (CSCE). The book provides the first detailed account of talks in Madrid, which started in fall of 1979 and ended September 1983 resulting in the mandate for the Stockholm negotiations, lasting from January 1984 until September 1986. U. S. Ambassador Lynn Marvin Hansen and Ambassador Oleg Grinevsky, who was the head of the Soviet Delegation to the CSCE, detail how each country perceived the negotiations. Diplomats representing the sixteen countries of NATO and the nine members of the (now defunct) Warsaw Treaty Organization as well as all the neutral and non-aligned nations of Europe were involved. Grinevsky is the main character in the prolonged and difficult negotiations. Hansen is the principle U.S. military negotiator. Germany's Ambassador Klaus Citron also played a significant role because of the importance of an agreement to Germany's future. Author Bio: After the success of the Stockholm Conference, Ambassadors Grinevsky and Hansen found a way to overcome the distance between them to write Making Peace. Both authors later participated in the Vienna negotiations on reducing conventional armed forces in Europe (CFE). Grinevsky then served as Russian Ambassador to Sweden. Hansen retired from the government in 2001. He has been married to his wife, Faith, for over 49 years.
