MARESCA, John J. To Helsinki : The Conference on Security and Cooperation in Europe 1973-1975. Foreword by William E. Griffith. (Durham, NC) : Duke University Press, 1985. First Edition. Pp (4),[v]-xiii,(5),[3]-292,(4). Index. 8vo, black cloth, gilt lettering to spine. "This authoritative, insider'saccount of one of the most important East-West negotiations is written by the only American official who participated in all of the negotiations during the Conference on Security and Cooperation in Europe that led to the thirty-five-nation Helsinki Summit in 1975 when the accord was signed. To Helsinki is the only study written from the American viewpoint, and the only account of the secret U.S.-Soviet bilateral negotiations in which Secretary of State Kissinger was involved. Maresca presents these negotiations in the context of the political events that influenced their course, such as the fall of Saigon and Watergate, and of the strategic interests of the participants. Maresca also offers insights into Soviet negotiating techniques as revealed at Helsinki and draws from these a number of lessons that could wellbe useful in future discussions with the Soviets. To Helsinki therefore no t only provides valuable information on the Helsinki process, but also represents an indispensable contribution to an understanding of East-West relations at the high-water mark of detente."
