Beschreibung:

Dealing with Dictators explores America’s efforts to make the dictatorships of Eastern Europe less tyrannical and more responsive to the country’s international interests during the Cold War era. US policies included a mix of economic and psychological warfare, subversion, cultural and economic penetration, and coercive diplomacy. Through careful examination of American and Hungarian sources, László Borhi assesses why some policies toward Hungary achieved their goals while others did not. When George H. W. Bush exclaimed to Mikhail Gorbachev on the day the Soviet Union collapsed, "Together we liberated Eastern Europe and unified Germany," he was hardly doing justice to the complicated history of the era. The story of Hungary’s transition from Soviet satellite to independent state sheds light on the dynamics of systemic change in international politics at the end of the Cold War.
