Sammanfattning: This essay is investigating what the citizens of Kalmar could read in the local newspapers on matters concerning the Soviet Union during the cold war. We chose to do a study of the two largest local newspapers in the region, Barometern and Östra Småland. We wanted to see how they reported about three specific events. In addition to the newspapers, we used litterature who dealt with Swedish foreign policies during the above mentioned period. The reason behind the choice of litterature was to get a bigger picture, contextually. The most important results given from the study was that the local citizens in Kalmar were able to get a lot of useful information regarding the events. We could also see that there was a difference between the newspapers in the way they reported about the events. That was most clear in the editorial material where the newspapers political tendencies were shining through. Regarding the swedish foreign policy, it was made clear to us that the most distinct feature was to maintain their neutrallity in the polarized world. In order to do that, the image of neutrality had to be preserved. That’s why Sweden during certain periods, were cautious in their criticism against the Soviet Union and USA.
