The book presents its cases in chronological order, and is quite good at showing how one case eventually helped spawn the other, thus providing great transitions. The book is also written quite objectively, and takes into accounts sources both public and private, from both sides of the Cold War. The text flows easily and quickly and always provides enough background information to give proper context. All in all, a great book and a great addition to anyone's reading list for Cold War literature, foreign policy, presidential misdeeds, and political science.
