The Cold War was always more than East versus West. Despite the nuclear stand-off, contacts continued across the Iron Curtain as a diverse array of cultural and social contacts and exchanges were maintained by both individuals and institutions. This volume gathers together some of the most interesting examples of this East-West interchange, tracking the various actors involved, examining their motivations, and judging the results. The book therefore makes a new and important contribution to our understanding of the Cold War's social dynamics and how the 'East-West divide' was experienced - if not transgressed - by the cultural world.
