With the fall of the Berlin Wall and the dissolution of the Soviet Union, the Cold War era came to an end. Since then, scholarship on these desperate years has intensified. Now you can consult one of the best sources for research on the Cold War and its hot spots across Europe with the Associated Press. This collection reveals startling events and in-depth press analysis of pressure points in the European Cold War arena.

From Vienna, its chief listening post, and also from Prague and Warsaw, the AP covered Eastern Europe during the Cold War. Reporters rotated in and out of the Eastern bloc, writing about the declining influence of the Soviet Union, the last days of the Iron Curtain, and the political and economic re-structuring of the former Soviet satellites.

The Vienna bureau files include copy documenting events in Albania, Austria, Bulgaria, the former Czechoslovakia, Hungary, Romania and the former Yugoslavia in the years 1952 to 2000 (date spans vary by country). News releases from government news agencies are often interfiled. Subject areas include the Austrian Independence Treaty (1955), the Hungarian Revolution of 1956, the IAEA, United Nations, Kurt Waldheim, Tito and the SALT talks, and more. There is also copy on the Croatian and Bosnian conflicts of the 1990s, and political and economic development of Eastern Europe in the post-Soviet period.

The Prague Bureau contains reporting on the Prague Spring (1968) and ensuing Soviet invasion The Warsaw Bureau Solidarity movement which emerged from the 1980 shipyard strikes in Gdansk, the rise of Lech Walesa, pro-democracy leader and first democratically elected president of Poland, and Czechoslovakia's "Velvet revolution", the name given the peaceful end of communist rule in 1989.
