3.0 out of 5 stars Index! 25 Sep 2005
By A Customer
On the whole this is a good book for any History students or anyone wishing to learn more about the USA and the Cold War. The content is acurate, easy to read and the essay examples are a good addition. However, the biggest downfall of this book - as trivial as it may sound - is the Index at the back! The book is split into 3/4 main sections which are good but if i want to read up on a certain incident, for example the 'Long Telegram' which isn't in the Index and will then have to spend the next 20 minutes searching through the book to find anything on that subject.

4.0 out of 5 stars Well rounded & informative 9 April 2001
By A Customer
This is a great, well rounded, and informative book. Although the book does lack some detail about the USA's involvement in the Vietnam war, it is still a great book. I would recommend this book to anyone who is studying the Cold War or who is just interested in the subject. The book holds a great deal of information and expands onto the motives and reasoning behind the action. It's well worth a read if you're interested in the subject.

1.0 out of 5 stars Very limited 3 Mar 2006
By A Customer
I find it odd that this book has been given such rave reviews. I found it to be poorly written and very badly researched. It will certainly be of very limited use to any pupils or undergraduates studying the subject matter. The author has paid little attention to detail and done little to capture the enthusiasm of any potential reader. It is fairly obvious why the subject matter is not popular to most readers. There are much better books readily available on the market.
