    THE MASTER OF BRINKMANSHIP

    This book is an excellent and brilliant narrative about one of the most dangerous periods in contemporary history, namely: The Cold War. The authors have used new archival material and other sources to tell a fascinating story about one of the key leaders who brought the world to the brinkship of war, especially during the Cuban Missle Crisis in 1962. This book includes unknown facts about Krushchev's standing in the Iraq revolution in 1958 as well as in other foci of conflict such as Asia and Africa. One of the main conclusions to be drawn from this book is the weakness of the CIA -and the West- to place Humint agents in the Soviet Union .With the exception of Colonel Oleg Penkovsky,the Western countries had only limited information about the policy- making processes during Khrushchev's time. Both authors use a lively language to describe not only Khrushchev but also his rivals and the inner circle machinations of the Politburo. In the end , the Soviet leader paid a heavy price for his hubris and his tough - pressure tactics did not earn him much. I highly recommend this book to those who want to have a broad picture about the high noon of The Cold War.
