This text book is amazingly user-friendly, with specific and general time-lines at the back, understandable language throughout, complete with quotes from respected historians. As an A-level student studying the Cold War, I have found this book extremely relevant to my studies despite its intent for IB.
Furthermore, as a visual learner, the colour, layout and pictures throughout help to sustain my interest even during late-night essay sessions. I really do recommend this book to anyone studying the cold war for either IB or A-level.

An absolutely splendiferous Cold War resource whether you're studying for the IB diploma or not.
It has been of immense use during my A level studies, conveying information clearly and concisely without compromising detail. There are plenty of excerpts, cartoons, maps, photo and quotes that make this an approachable, informed and incredibly useful introduction to the Cold War.
