The rivalry of the systems following 1945 brought about a political fragmentation in a small area in Southeastern Europe that was second to none.

The two Germanies' respective South Asia policies relied on and referenced one another to such an extent that they on occasion punctured the bipolarity of the Cold War.

The use of chemical weapons in Vietnam and nuclear testing in general are but two illustrations of the obvious fact that this global conflict of systems also had effects on the environment. Nevertheless, Cold War historians and environmental historians have been ignoring each other most of the time. An anthology on the "Environmental Histories of the Cold War", edited by John McNeill and Corinna Unger in 2010, demonstrates the value of an environmental history of the Cold War.

Unraveling the multiple, entangled strands of the history of the Cold War remains one of the great challenges of research into the recent past, and especially in what was then the Third World.

But American and Soviet leaders were not the only actors who determined the course of events. Historian Bernd Greiner on a topic that deserves greater attention.

For years, East Germany's Communist party, the SED, promoted the impression that it was cultivating a close and special relationship with the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO) under the leadership of Yasser Arafat on the basis of common values and shared political goals. Lutz Maeke reaches a different conclusion: Conflict and confrontation, and not friendship and trust, marked the relationship between the GDR and the PLO under Arafat's chairmanship from the beginning.
