What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

Alice George succeeds in exploring a neglected aspect of the much-studied Cuban missile crisis. By showing how the average American responded to the threat of Soviet missiles in Cuba, her book fills an important gap in the scholarly literature.—Robert A. Divine, University of Texas at Austin



Awaiting Armageddon tells how Americans who were not decision-makers perceived and responded to the most dangerous crisis in our history. It enriches the story wonderfully.—Ernest May, Harvard University



[An] admirable social history . . . especially notable for its portrayal of how children were traumatized. . . . George skillfully demonstrates that the crisis was inflamed by the Cold War culture. . . . [A] first-rate investigation . . . Strongly recommended.—Library Journal
