Designed to aid undergraduate and advanced study, this invaluable reference work provides an up-to-date summary of the latest research on the origins, escalation, and end of the Cold War. The major phases of the war are clearly organized and presented in eight chapters--each consisting of a factual overview of events, a detailed analysis of key issues, and a presentation of relevant documents for discussion, including previously unavailable Soviet sources. Addressing frequently-asked questions in class discussions and exams, this book is an excellent introduction to the subject and an accessible guide to the wealth of information about the Cold War.
