4.0 out of 5 stars The Cold War, 10 Mar. 2006
This review is from: The Cold War (Hardcover)
A very good general introduction to the history of the Cold War. Lewis-Gaddis is one of the most accomplished historians of the Cold War and this book is an excellently written synergy of all his previous work.
For the general reader this is an excellent introduction to the period, however Gaddis does seem to place a great deal of emphasis on the actions of individual actors and social groups. While these were undoubltedly of enormous significance Gaddis neglects the economic factors that helped determine the Cold War's outcome, especially the failures of the Soviet command economy and the increasing impact of globalisation.
