Booknews
Revised papers from a 1998 symposium organized by the Norwegian Nobel Institute take stock of new international scholarship on the Cold War. They summarize approaches to the study of the Cold War, and discuss issues such as the origins of the Cold War, stages of the conflict, how the Soviet-US rivalry ended, the nuclear arms race, strategic and ideological aspects, and uses of international relations theory in Cold War studies. Contributors come from many different academic and national backgrounds; the editor is reader in international history at the London School of Economics. Distributed by ISBS. Annotation c.
