Michael Cotey Morgan’s long-anticipated study about the Conference on Security and Cooperation in Europe (CSCE) and the 1975 Helsinki Final Act, The Final Act: The Helsinki Accords and the Transformation of the Cold War, is mandatory reading for anyone who wants to understand the history of the Cold War. Though not the first in-depth account on the subject, as declared on the book’s cover, it is the most comprehensive one. Morgan’s book is a major accomplishment. It is based on a massive body of original research, including documents from fourteen archives in nine countries—seven on the western and two on the eastern side of the former iron curtain—as well as published documents from even more countries.
