Abstract
The preliminary report of an on-going research project examines the problems of internal cohesion of the Warsaw Treaty Organization (WTO). In contrast to the majority of studies of the WTO which tend to focus on armaments and strategic considerations, the aim here is to explore the social attitudes and perceptions of military personnel, which are considered to be reflective of the prevailing values of the political culture of their respective countries and/or national groups. The approach allows for an assessment of the cohesiveness of the alliance from the point of view of national and social attitudes utilizing contemporary social scientific analysis and methodology. The report sets forth a detailed research framework, evaluates the body of secondary source material for each of the seven WTO countries, and offers some preliminary observations on the reliability of the Warsaw Pact military forces in cases of potential stress.
