Troublemaker or peacemaker? Andreas Papandreou, the Euromissile Crisis, and the policy of peace,... The article sheds light on a neglected piece of the Euromissile Crisis puzzle, namely Greece’s policy of peace. The article examines the interaction of Andreas Papandreou’s socialist government’s foreign policy, developments in the country’s political culture and national frames of reference, and the unfolding drama of the nuclear crisis of the 1980s. While subscribing to an international cause, papandreou framed the policy of peace in ardent nationalist terms that involved renegotiation of the american bases on greek soil, relations with nato, balkan regional schemes for nuclear-weapons-free zones, and international initiatives with the third world. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Cold War History Taylor & Francis
