Summary Peter Jones presents a detailed description and analysis of the last major security negotiation between the countries of NATO and the former Warsaw Pact as the Cold War was ending, and the creation of the resulting first European security agreement of the post-Cold War era. The book shows that the security bureaucracies, and especially the intelligence bureaucracies, of the two superpowers were reluctant to enter into this negotiation and still had conceptions of security (and of each other) which were out of step with the evolving situation
