    Overview

    • Khrushchev’s road to open confrontation with the West
    • Accessible for the first time, Soviet sources furnish new insights into Khrushchev’s Berlin policy

    Aims and Scope

    Published for the first time, Khrushchev’s secret conversations, consultations, and notes during the early phase of the Berlin Crisis that he initiated show us a politician filled with strong emotions who aimed at the domination of West Berlin and the “ruin” of NATO, thereby openly challenging the Western powers. However, he was not ultimately prepared to risk the nuclear war he had threatened.
