"Morgan's skillful synthesis of his manifold research findings and the cultural-historical analysis of the negotiations make the book extremely worth reading." * H-Soz-Kult * "A must read for policymakers."---Jesse McIntyre III, Military Review "[Morgan's] account of the negotiations is hugely interesting."---Benjamin Nathans, Times Literary Supplement "Morgan . . . makes a convincing case that in terms of importance, Helsinki was on a par with Westphalia, Vienna, and Versailles. Highly recommended." * Choice * "[The Final Act] reveal[s] much about a game-changer in history. The research is exhaustive and fascinating."---Jordan Luber, New Eastern Europe "A fine story of intrigue and manipulation worthy of the best writers. . . . An authoritative book that should be widely read." * Queensland Reviewers Collective * "Morgan has done a brilliant job. . . . The Final Act, a volume in the Princeton series 'America in the World,' is an essential read for anyone interested in the Cold War." * StrategyPage * "The most richly documented account of the negotiations."---Andrew Moravcsik, Foreign Affairs "Fascinating."---David Skok, The Logic "The Final Act debunks the many myths and simplifications about the Helsinki agreement that have surrounded it ever since 1975 and is an extremely valuable contribution to the current reevaluation of the late Cold War . . . . [Morgan] has succeeded in creating an effortless narrative of a complicated international diplomatic process while highlighting its far-reaching importance . . . . It is hard to imagine a more balanced account. This book is sure to become the standard work of reference for research focusing on topics as varied as human rights, trade relations, activist groups and international diplomacy in the 1970s and 1980s."---Rosa Magnusdottir, The Slavonic and East European Review "Fascinating."---Andrew Preston, London Review of Books
