Summary During 1973-76, years generally associated with East/West detente in Europe, NATO's southern flank was plunged into crisis by a revolution in Portugal and a coup d'etat in Cyprus. Political turmoil in Portugal, Turkey's military intervention in Cyprus, the collapse of the military government in Greece, and the threat of a Greco-Turkish war, all emphasised the vulnerability of the alliance to regime change in the Mediterranean. The Western allies had also to prepare for the death of two ageing dictators in Spain and Yugoslavia, and the possible entry of Communists into government in France and Italy. This volume draws upon the records of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, the Cabinet Office and the Ministry of Defence, to document the reactions of Harold Wilson's Labour government to these developments. The documents, some of which are not yet in the public domain, reveal that while the Labour government welcomed the restoration of democracy in Athens and Lisbon, it was cautious about the prospects for political change in Spain, and uncertain about how best to respond to the threat of a Communist take-over in Portugal. They cover in detail British efforts to achieve a negotiated settlement of the Cyprus dispute and shed new light on the differences which emerged between James Callaghan and Henry Kissinger both in the handling of this issue, and in their dealings with Portugal after Caetano's overthrow and Spain before the death of Franco. This book will be of much interest to scholars of British political history, the Cold War and international history in general.
