From the Publisher'Historical science would do well to emphasize the status of ther east-West conflict as a struggle for cultural meaning - as a 'war of intellects'. This book helps that process.'
This book asks the reader to reassess the Cold War not just as superpower conflict and high diplomacy, but as social and cultural history. It makes cross-cultural comparisons of the socio cultural aspects of the Cold War across the East/West block divide, dealing with issues including broadcasting, public opinion, and the production and consumption of popular culture.
