5.0 out of 5 stars COLD WAR
Great book, in good condition, and promptly delivered. Makes fascinating reading, and I want to study the subject at university. It always makes my blood boil how long it takes to issue it to bookshops, but Amazon service is amazing!

1.0 out of 5 stars Terrible on every level, 10 Oct 2013
I've read a few histories of the Cold War, but never one this bad. Neither the US State Dept or the British Foreign Office could have done better - both in terms of the Western-centric bias in every page and in terms of style. It jars all the way through, clearly the work of a right wing ideologue who views history as evidence of the abiding virtues of capitalism, western imperialism, the British Empire, and white man's burden.

The sentence construction is poor and laboured, to the point where it's hard to conceive that it was proof read before being published.

Terrible.
