"Morgan . . . makes a convincing case that in terms of importance, Helsinki was on a par with Westphalia, Vienna, and Versailles. Highly recommended."--Choice "[Morgan's] account of the negotiations is hugely interesting."---Benjamin Nathans, Times Literary Supplement "Fascinating."---David Skok, The Logic "This judicious and well-researched book is perhaps as exhaustive on the origins of the Final Act as the diplomatic negotiations that created it. Morgan's biggest surprise for readers is a story of why and how the Soviet bloc acted as halfhearted architect of a liberal-democratic European order. In a truly historical irony, the book provides a nostalgic contrast to the woes and divisions that this order is experiencing in our own day."--Vladislav M. Zubok, author of A Failed Empire: The Soviet Union in the Cold War from Stalin to Gorbachev "Michael Cotey Morgan's richly researched book reminds us that, in tense times when chances of improvement seem remote, sowing the seeds for long-term change is often the smartest strategy. The Final Act is a timely and essential book."--Mary Elise Sarotte, author of The Collapse: The Accidental Opening of the Berlin Wall "The Final Act is a masterpiece. Michael Cotey Morgan tells a complex story with a novelist's attention to narrative and a historian's depth and scope. This will be, I am confident, the definitive work on the most important development in international relations of the postwar period."--Philip Bobbitt, author of The Shield of Achilles: War, Peace, and the Course of History "The Final Act offers by far the most comprehensive history of a critical turning point in modern international diplomacy."--Thomas Borstelmann, author of The 1970s: A New Global History from Civil Rights to Economic Inequality
