an excellent survey of the main contours of the conflict (Vanessa Walker, Reviews in History)
an impressive array of primary materials designed to examine the Cold War as a 'global conflict' ... This book's strength is undoubtedly its offering of multiple perspectives, especially for well-established areas of Cold War history. (Vanessa Walker, History in Focus)
The Cold War: A History in Documents and Eyewitness Accounts provides an excellent survey of the main contours of the conflict and offers new perspectives on now familiar stories of the Cold War. This book, with its focus on experiences rather than evaluation, is an ideal companion to a course on the Cold War era. It is also a valuable reference for those teaching this time period. (Vanessa Walker, History in Focus (IHR))
The publication of The Cold War: A History in Documents and Eyewitness Accounts is very timely indeed. This first rate book provides students of both the Cold War and the post-Cold War international system with a treasure trove of material condensed in a single, accessible volume. (Andrew O'Neil, Australian Review of Public Affairs)
The collected documents convey a gritty and hard-edged atmosphere often lacking in other accounts of the Cold War.... For anyone who doubts this, Hanhimaki and Westad demonstrate through their judicious selection of documents just how dangerous, nasty, and brutal the Cold War really was. (Andrew O'Neil, Australian Review of Public Affairs)
The feast that the book, otherwise, provides must be acknowledged ... The work has no rivals in its field. (A.G. Noorani, Frontline (India))
A fascinating compilation of documents that illuminates diverse aspects of the Cold War and from multiple perspectives. This volume is essential reading for all students of the Cold War and should prove invaluable in teaching courses on the international history of the twentieth century. (Melvyn P. Leffler, University of Virginia)
This is a superbly-crafted collection, ideally suited to the teaching of Cold War international history in all its aspects. It deserves the most widespread classroom use. (John Lewis Gaddis, Yale University)
