Overview

ABC-CLIO is proud to announce the latest addition to its widely acclaimed legacy of historical reference works for students. Under the direction of internationally known expert Spencer Tucker, Cold War: A Student Encyclopedia captures the vast scope, day-to-day drama, and lasting impact of the Cold War more clearly and powerfully than any other student resource ever published.

Ranging from the end of the Second World War to the collapse of the Soviet Union, Cold War: A Student Encyclopedia offers vivid portrayals of leading individuals, significant battles, economic developments, societal/cultural events, changes in military technology, and major treaties and diplomatic agreements. The nearly 1,100 entries, plus topical essays and a documents volume, draw heavily on recently opened Russian, Eastern European, and Chinese archives. Enhanced by a rich program of maps and images, it is a comprehensive, current, and accessible student reference on the dominant geopolitical phenomenon of the late-20th century.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"recommended for academic and high-school libraries, which will find it easy to choose the right set. For a public library serving both general readers and high-schoolers doing homework assignments, Cold War: A Student Encyclopedia will meet the needs of both groups."

Booklist

"If you want to add the best available research on the Cold War to your collection, either one of these [in reference to ABC-CLIO's The Encyclopedia of the Cold War] would be your source, which one is up to you."

-

Library Media Connection

"The comprehensiveness and clarity of this work make it a useful resource."

Broad in scope, with incisive, in-depth coverage of specific topics, Cold War is an outstanding reference work. This impressive set boasts more than 1,000 entries that provide global information from World War II to 1991 and sometimes beyond, depending on the topic. The general essays in volume one provide background historical information. Encyclopedia entries found in volumes one through four offer data on specific countries, government officials and other key figures, general topics such as genocide and peace movements, wars, and much more. This comprehensive work describes the worldwide societal, cultural, and scientific ramifications of the Cold War by explicating the economics, technological advances, music, literature, and films of the period. Volume five is an impressive compendium of 171 primary source documents, including Winston Churchill's 1946 Iron Curtain Speech, the 1973 Paris Peace Accords, and Jimmy Carter's 1980 State of the Union Address. Black-and-white photographs, tables and charts, and almost fifty maps nicely enhance the text. See and see-also references are helpful as are the Web sites listed for those seeking further information. Written by international contributors, this encyclopedia is a superb overview of the Cold War's influence and effects. Lucid explanations of even the most difficult concepts make it a user-friendly resource for high school students that is sure to prove itself invaluable to teachers as well. Reviewer: Rachelle Bilz
School Library Journal

Gr 7 Up -The alphabetical entries in this version of Tuckera€™s The Encyclopedia of the Cold War (ABC-CLIO, 2007) focus on the years 1945 through 1995 and will help students understand the conflicts, the arms race, and the tense climate between the superpowers and their allies. This work has 200 fewer entries than The Encyclopedia , but it boasts over 220 more images than that work, including more charts and graphs. It also includes less detail and does not assume that readers have access to an academic library. The wars in Korea and Vietnam and the Arab-Israeli wars are covered extensively. Readers will be intrigued by the discussions of fallout shelters, McCarthyism, film, espionage, the space race, and a€œduck and covera€ drills. Volume five contains 171 primary-source documents, each preceded by an introduction to help readers grasp the situation surrounding the documenta€™s creation. Back matter includes the rank structure for selected Cold War militaries, brief country profiles, and essays on how to read primary sources, maps, charts, tables, and graphs. The comprehensiveness and clarity of this work make it a useful resource.-Madeleine G. Wright, New Hampton School, NH
