Hi,

I'm retaking a module at uni for my politics degree as i never passed. i'm still trying to fully understand detente...if anyone could summarise up/lengthy explain it from their own understanding..i'd appreciate it so much. i'm worried and terrified and running out of time. i've revised other topics; but this one i am sure will come up (realisation of it suddenly came).

So if you could explain: the causes, the period of it and why it collapsed etc... i already have the gist and whatnot; but the more i read and get viewpoints the increase of understanding i'll have of it..

thanks.

"It was the thaw of the cold war. International affairs was permanently loosened"
^typical textbook summary

Basically people started to realise **** was getting very serious and very scary and very expensive and common sense kicked in. From the Soviet/US side of things it's a lot to do with understanding the aftermath of the Cuban Missile Crisis in that it got them talking, once you've made one agreement it's not to hard to make another.

Without having a more specific question it's hard to give a more details answer without it being an essay. Plus I'm not especially hot on anything until after the Cold War.

That was helpful. I get that the soviets and USA tried to push their differences aside, and that the detente happening was a win win for both teams. USA got to have some form of control agreement with the outlandish soviets, and felt like they were supreme and the hegemony to some extent.. also after the Vietnam war, USA knew that they had to slow their row with finances in global affairs, and that handling communism in a non-war way is definitely ideal- and due to the back home anger with people being in war in Vietnam that the people in USA had made the president want to calm international tensions and involvement.. So I kinda get why it started, but just I don't get how detente got rocky and came to an end...I've read textbooks, but they bore me so much (the ones I own)- It isn't sticking in my head and the exams on Tuesday! GULP

If you know anything else; it'd be nice if you'd share it.

Throughout the cold war there was smaller battles taking place all over the world which centred around communism vs capitalism and had he baking of whichever super power. But then Afghanistan happened after years of things being reasonably quiet and the US weren't happy with the Soviet involvement and all but revoked Detente in response. Reagan, complete with his evil empire attitude, got elected and reinforced the all but revoke.
