Revealing British diplomatic records of the 60s and 70s for the first time, this volume charts the course of relations between Britain and the Soviet Union during 1968-72. Focusing on the bilateral relationship, the documentation also sheds light on the wider issues which each country faced: war in the Middle East and South East Asia, the search for agreement on arms limitation, Berlin and the future of Germany. The volume includes: Harold Wilson's visit to Moscow, January 1968; the UK as intermediary between the USA and Soviet Union over the war in Vietnam; the invasion of Czechoslovakia; Anglo-Soviet trade and technological agreements; the release of Gerald Brooke in 1969; intelligence assessments of the Soviet threat; the expulsion of 105 Soviet intelligence offices in 1971; cultural exchanges and the position of artists and musicians in the USSR; and assessments of UK policy between the superpowers and entering Europe.
