This book provides a clear and lively account of how relations between Russia and America after World War Two fell into a Cold War. Assessing both the clash of ideas and personalities which brought about this confrontation the book highlights the emergences of a new mode of global politics. Looking at this conflict the book argues might help us to understand todays own troubled world.

Editorial Reviews

"Kennedy-Pipe has written a thoughtful and insightful new history of the early Cold War period... Recommended." —CHOICE "This section of the book will be a good introduction to the Cold War for students or a good review for experienced scholars." --CHOICE "Equally interesting, however, is Kennedy-Pipe's examination of the contemporary relevance of the Cold War period to current political realities.  This section sets the book apart from other Cold War histories."--CHOICE
