Overview

Thirty-six years after the Cuban Missile Crisis, these declassified documents stand as testament to just how dangerously close the world came to nuclear destruction in 1962, and challenge the official history of the event as a model of crisis management.

This collection of formerly secret records, available now in paperback for the first time, includes correspondence between John E Kennedy, Nikita Krushchev, and Fidel Castro; intelligence reports; minutes; cables; and new documents released since the publication of the hardcover. The editors have provided a document-by-document account of the most important superpower confrontation of the twentieth century.

The Cuban Missile Crisis, 1962, was the first in a series from the National Security Archive to be published by The New Press (see pages 3, 24-25 for other readers).
