The Cold Warexamines the complex arguments which divided East and West following the end of the Second World War, and analyzes its eight major phases, including:

* the emergence of the Cold War
* Coexistence and Detente
* Glasnost in the late 1980s.

Combining factual overview and background discussion of the key issues such as the nuclear threat and who, if anyone, won the Cold War, with analysis of source material, students will find this a must-have in the study of this major historical event.
