The QCD Lagrangean expressed in terms of dual potentials exhibits, at zero temperature, spontaneous symmetry breaking giving rise to dual superconductivity and therefore to color confinement. At a finite temperature, the spontaneous symmetry breaking disappears and so does confinement. We estimate the deconfining transition temperature using a high-temperature expansion.
