This paper begins by providing a brief biography of Weinberg. It then discusses how, in his book, Weinberg studies relations between Germany and Russia in the early period of World War II, using largely German primary sources for his information, which includes Soviet sources that were later turned over to the Germans. It shows how Weinberg tells the story in chronological order, beginning in the period from Munich to the march on Prague.

From the Paper:

"He notes that the "Munich agreement opened a new period in European diplomacy" and that what he is going to examine about the issue are the results of Munich rather than what led up to it. The immediate effect of the Munich agreement "was a general disruption of the existing order." Mussolini, Hitler, Chamberlain, and the French Prime Minister met at Munich in September 1938, and Britain and France backed down entirely from their previous position and now agreed that Germany could begin occupying the Sudetenland from October 1 in return for a guarantee that Hitler would make no more territorial demands in Europe. By 1939, Britain and France continued on the road to appeasement, though Britain was showing some strength by warning Mussolini about "the possible effects of further German aggression eastwards.""
