The Politics of Neutrality in Austria and Finland
To Be Published July 15th 2013 by Routledge – 160 pages
This book opens unique perspectives on the Cold War battle for the hearts and minds of the people of post-1945 Europe. Using the Cold War neutrals Austria and Finland as an example, the study shows how the ideological Cold War also shaped politics in countries that sought not to take sides in the bipolarised conflict.
