From Cold War to Democratic Peace
Third Parties, Peaceful Change, and the OSCE

Janie Leatherman

Cloth $49.95L    |    0-8156-3007-7    |   2003

This book contributes a standard theory of third party mediation thus providing a unique window on the development of the OSCE from its origins through its restructuring in the 1900s.

On November 19, 1990, the participating states of the Conference on Security and Cooperation in Europe (CSCE) gathered in Paris to sign the Charter of Paris and celebrate an end to the Cold War. How did the thirty-five CSCE countries, which included the United States, Canada, and all of Western and Eastern Europe (except Albania), the Soviet Union, and the neutral and nonaligned states, escape the clutches of the Cold War without a violent confrontation, a devastating conventional war, or even a nuclear holocaust? Janie Leatherman argues that by forging an understanding of cooperative security and embracing the protection of human rights, the primacy of democratic government, and free market economies, the CSCE led the participating states from Cold War confrontation toward a democratic peace.

Janie Leatherman is an associate professor of international relations and codirector of peace studies in the Department of Politics and Government at Illinois State University.
