Abstract

This chapter argues that computer-based global modelling produced particular long-term horizons which played an important, transformative role in Soviet governance by opening it up to East–West cooperation. Global modellers conceptualized the planet as a complex, interconnected system, the understanding of which required transnational scientific cooperation, enabling both scientists and data to cross national boundaries and Cold War divisions. In turn, Soviet scientists forged and used the idea of the long-term future of the world to reveal and criticize problems being experienced, but not always acknowledged, in the Soviet Union. A history of computer-based global modelling is, therefore, a history of intertwining globalization, the transformation of the Soviet regime, and East–West transfer. [First paragraph]
