29 6 Introduction The Warsaw Pact tends only to be referred to en passant, and without any explanation of its significance. A lot of research therefore remains to be done, as the way in which the WP inadvertently served to emancipate its NSWP members has so far been overlooked. 30 The focus on bilateral relations on the communist side of the Cold War has become a recurrent feature in new Cold War history, which needs to be complemented by a multilateral approach. 31 Whereas Lüthi echoes a persistent trend within new Cold War history by stressing the importance of ideas and ideology,32 Radchenko nevertheless takes issue with this approach.

In this chapter the seminal developments within the Soviet bloc and their impact on the WP members will be treated in turn, such as Khrushchev’s secret speech in February 1956, the Hungarian Revolution in the autumn of 1956, and the beginning of the second Berlin Crisis in 1958. The Sino–Soviet split and its repercussions on the dynamics within the WP will be central to Chapter 2, which serves to assess how it both caused the first cracks within the WP and created more room for manoeuvre within the alliance in the period from 1960 to 1964.
