CWIHP is pleased to announce the publication of Ostpolitik, 1969-1974: European and Global Responses by CWIHP Senior Scholar Bernd Schaefer and Carole Fink.

Published by Cambridge University Press, Ostpolitik, 1969-1974 examines the policies of West German Chancellor Willy Brandt who broke the Cold War stalemate in Europe by assuming responsibility for the crimes of the Third Reich and by formally renouncing several major West German claims, while also launching an assertive policy toward his communist neighbors and conducting a deft balancing act between East and West.
