Product Description

Review

This book is a brilliant chronicling of the Atlantic's counter-attack and its dsorry prelude - a forthright, brave history, full of wit and humanity, and readable to a degree that will delight all but the green-eyed (Allan Mallinson The Times)

An intellectual autobigoraphy concealed within a major history book ... a powerful alternative to the Left 'liberal' reading of Cold War history, without sounding in the least triumphalist (Michael Burleigh The Spectator)

Stone's eye for the telling detail gives his account of the cold war years an edge of authenticity lacking from more conventional histories ... the one book that anyone who wants to understand the cold war as it developed must read (John Gray New Statesman)

He paints on a broad canvas, showing how the Cold War unfolded ... [he] also delves into less obvious topics for a Cold War book ... Mr. Stone doesn't stop to address the contemporary crisis, but The Atlantic and Its Enemies is an inspiring reminder that the West has risen to meet such challenges before, helped at crucial moments by bold leaders (William Anthony Hay Wall Street Journal)

Format: Hardcover
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.

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!
