CONF: The End of the Cold War and Its Impact on Nuclear Non-Proliferation

Your network editor has reposted this from H-Announce. The byline reflects the original authorship.

In Southern Africa, where classic Cold War proxy war scenes had been playing out since the mid-1970s, the geopolitical scene changed dramatically as a result of these events. Soviet support was withdrawn from Africa and with it, the perceived communist threat that dominated the South African Apartheid regime’s policies since the 1960s.
