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
