The foreign relations of the Warsaw Pact is an understudied historical field in comparison to the study of the relations of the Western powers or the Soviet Union. In order to help fill this void in historiography we are working on editing a volume of essays on the role of Warsaw Pact countries in the “Third World” during the Cold War era.
