Bulgaria and Great Britain Before and in the Beginning of the Cold War: Politics, Economy and Propaganda, 19441953 (Series Academica 2). Language: Bulgarian with a summary in English


    Thе book surveys political, economic and cultural issues of British-Bulgarian relations. It throws light on the place of Bulgaria in British diplomacy and Bulgarian attitudes toward Britain. It also examines how Britain formulated and developed its policy towards the Soviet satellites in the spheres of politics, economic and culture, and, particularly, asks how Britain planned to use the weaknesses of the Soviet bloc in its policy. The case under examination demonstrates how political conflict, economic necessity and cultural propaganda were interwoven in a complex net of interdependence.
