Explaining the Cold War

Educational
profile
The book begins with a very detailed, yet clear, explanation of just what the Cold War was (something that is easily overlooked but shouldn’t be). It then goes back in time to consider long-term or more fundamental explanations for the Cold War as well as carefully examining what unfolded as the war ended and in the early post-war years, ending with the Berlin Blockade. The West’s perspectives on events are balanced with those from the Soviet Union and East European Communists so that you should be able to apportion blame where you think it best fits, if indeed there is “blame” to be attached to either side. The notes frameworks are set to guide your thinking not direct it.
