Global Rules

James E. Cronin

Yale University Press

This chapter examines the developments that followed the signing of the Helsinki Accords in the summer of 1975, with particular reference to the emergence of a ‘second Cold War’ and a renewed arms race. It considers the issues associated with détente and human rights, the renewed cooperation among the allies that had been so disunited in responding to the oil crisis of 1973–1974, and the Soviet Union's focus on extending its influence. It also discusses the impact of economic crisis, precipitated by rising oil prices, on international relations, and how Great Britain and the United States responded to the crisis with their economic policies.

Keywords:   détente, human rights, Cold War, Soviet Union, economic crisis, oil prices, international relations, Great Britain, United States, economic policies
