What People are Saying About This

Robert Wright

'Warming Up to the Cold War is a tightly focused and beautifully written study of Canadian reactions to the myriad "emergencies" of the early Cold War period. Robert Teigrob argues - entirely persuasively - that the Gouzenko affair, the nuclear build-up, and finally, the Korean War were felt keenly by ordinary Canadians, so much so that they drove cautious government officials towards the alliance with the United States. Teigrob's revisionist discoveries are extremely important and restore agency to Canadians in the early postwar period. The book impressed me at every level and I enjoyed it immensely. The author has done us a great service in packing so much provocative analysis into such an accessible book.'
