Product Description

From the Back Cover

 

Origins of the Cold War covers the formative years of the extraordinary struggle between the two superpowers, the Soviet Union and the United States. In a clear and concise manner, Martin McCauley explains how the Cold War originated and developed and unravels some of the complex issues that gave rise to the Cold War. The book explores questions such as:

  • Who was responsible for the Cold War?
  • Was it inevitable or could it have been avoided?
  • Was Stalin genuinely interested in a post-war agreement?

This third edition is revised, updated and expanded with new material on areas such as the KGB and spying, and the contribution of intelligence to Stalin’s picture of the world. The introduction looks at our perceptions of the Cold War, the various approaches that have been adopted for reviewing the Cold War and the difficulties of developing a theory of the Cold War. The book incorporates the most recent scholarship, theories and newly-released information to provide students with an invaluable introduction to the subject.

4.0 out of 5 stars Well written and presented... 7 Aug 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is one of the primary books on the OU AA312 reading list for the final TMA, and I have say that I wish the rest of the course had been written this well. Very easy to digest with excellent annotation and referencing. Much better than Marwick!

4.0 out of 5 stars Understanding the Cold War 8 May 2011
By gmsephiroth - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
"Origins of the Cold War" is a great addition to the library of any history buff, or anyone looking for a bit of extra insight into the Cold War. It offers a greater understanding of the turbulent politics and different ideologies that led up to the Cold War, as well as the perspectives of these developments from the points of view of both the United States and the Soviet Union. It helps the reader draw their own conclusion as to whose, if anyone's, fault it was that the Cold War came to pass, and more importantly, if it could have been avoided.
