Cold War: An International History / Edition 1

More than a bipolar conflict between two superpowers, the decades-long Cold War had implications for the entire world. In this accessible, comprehensive retelling, Carole K. Fink provides new insights and new perspectives on key events with an emphasis on people, power and ideas, and cultural coverage “from the Beetle to the Beatles.” Global Cold War goes beyond US-USSR relations to explore the Cold War from an international perspective, including key events and developments in Africa, Asia, and Latin America. Fink also provides a broader timeline of the Cold War than any other text, charting the lead-up to the conflict like the Russian Revolution and World War II, and discussing the aftermath of the Cold War since 1992. Based on the latest research and scholarship, Global Cold War is the consummate book on this lengthy and complex conflict for today’s students and history buffs.
