This timely collection of essays offers one of the first, serious efforts to examine the end of the Cold War. The book presents the thinking of leading historians, political scientists, policy analysts, and commentators from the United States, Great Britain, Germany, France, Norway and the former Soviet Union. Together they discuss such important issues as the origins of the Cold War, its ideological and geopolitical sources, the cost of that epic conflict, its influence on American life and institutions, its winners and losers.

"So much has been said and written about the end of the cold war that it is difficult to gain perspective on the events that shaped it and its end. This excellent volume offers a remedy. The authors run the gamut from Noam Chomsky to Samuel Wells, Jr., and the interpretations of its beginnings and what has happened since 1989 fall along the same political spectrum. The writing is lively, lucid, intelligent, and accessible; the points of view refreshing and insightful." Current History "So much has been said and written about the end of the cold war that it is difficult to gain perspective on the events that shaped it and its end.

Current History "Rarely does one come across quite so entertaining a compilation of academic essays as Michael Hogan's collection on the subject of the Cold War. It is a treat, inspired perhaps by envy at the sheer audacity of Francis Fukuyama's suggestion that we have reached 'The End of History.' Not to be outdone, the toiling masses of academe emerge from their libraries, blinking in the post-war sunlight, and thrill us with daring swoops as they revisit their earlier judgments on the great confrontation." The Washington Post "Thoughtful, articulate essays by respected experts on critically important issues." Booklist "Thoughtful, articulate essays by respected experts on critically important issues." Booklist "This is a stimulating collection of essays." Foreign Affairs
