In October 1988, AFES-PRESS organised the first East-West conference on military doctrine and arms control, some 18 months prior to the CSCE seminar on military doctrine in 1990. The volume contains after a brief introduction by the editor the following nine papers:

2. Hans Günter Brauch: Military Doctrine as a Risk Factor: Implications for Strategic Stability and Requirements for Arms Control
3. Gert Krell: NATO and Warsaw Pact Doctrines of Deterrence and Warfighting - A Comparative Perspective
4. Claus Richter: Political-Military Conceptual Structures in East and West - A Comparative Perspective
5. Gertmann Sude: NATO Strategy - The Official Interpretation of MC 14/3 Flexible Response
6. Peter Heesch: Military Doctrine - an American Perspective
7. Bruce Menning: Soviet Military Doctrine: Change and Challenge
8. Andre Brie: Die Position der sozialistischen Staaten zum Problem der nichtprovokativen Verteidigung - Defensivität und Angriffsunfähigkeit
9. Heinz Kozak: Remarks on Austria's Military Doctrine and Security
10. Pekka Visuri: The Finish Defence Doctrine

The report concludes with a chronology of steps leading to the CSCE seminar on military doctrine between May 1987 and December 1989, the programme of the conference, a list of participants and copies of the press reaction.
