Review

Teaching the Cold War has been made considerably easier with the publication of this excellent addition to the Access to History series...we can now turn to David Williamson's handy guide to the division of Europe in the post-war world...Williamson's excellent new book will take some beating as a school textbook...It is concise and readable. (SATH 2002-09-01)

Format: Paperback
Williamson provides a basic, general introduction to the main facts of the Cold War, but there is a definite American bias, not only in respect of US relations with the Soviet Union, but also with the western European nations - America saved the world idea! For a much, much better (and fuller) introduction to the subject, read William Keylor's books. He is a Harvard professor, but takes a very neutral but informative approach. His books are also very easy to read.

Format: Paperback
When studying A Level Modern History for OCR, this book was used as a textbook for my entire college class and proved to be quite helpful however it did not go into a lot of detail. For a top-level expanation of most events during the time period and handy diagrams (esp. for revision purposes) this book was very helpful however, for the nitty-gritty facts and in-depth descriptions of different historians' theories it was not as satisfying. As it covers such as large time-period I can understand why there is a lack of detail and although it provided a solid base for most areas of the course I am still glad I did not have to pay for it!!

Format: Paperback
This is a poor introduction to a complex subject and only gets a second star because it might be useful in explaining the matter to toddlers!
