Overview

Drawing on recently opened archives from the former Soviet Union as well as on existing research largely unavailable in English, distinguished authorities from eight countries provide new insight into the origins of the Cold War and into the Europe that has been molded by it.

"David Reynolds and his fellow essayists have made a truly valuable contribution toward the reinterpretation of Cold War origins that is sure to follow the opening of documents in Europe and the former Soviet Union. Viewing the Cold War as international history does make a difference, and this volume is one of the first to show why."-John Lewis Gaddis, Professor of History, Ohio University

"An outstanding collection of essays."-Jacob Heilbrunn, The New Republic

"A welcome addition to the still-burgeoning literature on the origins of the Cold War."-Foreign Affairs

"Students of American affairs will find the U.S. chapter in itself an excellent historiographical guide, but far more important for them is the opportunity provided by the rest of the book to place U.S. policies in a wider European context."-D.K. Adams, American Studies

"This is a valuable book. It reminds American, British, and Soviet historians that, as Wiebes and Zeeman write, the 'Cold War was not a bi- or even tri-lateral affair'. Indeed, this book might provoke historians to publish broader international histories of the Cold War in Europe."-Terry Anderson, The Journal of American History

"A contribution towards objectifying discussion of the cold war. . . . To be appreciated."-Wilfried Loth, The International History Review

"A handy introduction to the historiography of Cold War origins in Europe. The book's usefulness as a reference work is enhanced by maps, a chronology of events and a table of key appointees in post-war governments."-John Wilson Young, English Historical Review
