About this item
More than a bipolar conflict between two Superpowers, the decades-long Cold War had implications for the entire world. In this accessible, comprehensive retelling, Carole K. Fink provides new insights and perspectives on key events with an emphasis on people, power, and ideas, along with cultural coverage ?from the Beetle to the Beatles.” Cold War goes beyond US-USSR relations to explore the Cold War from an international perspective, including key events and developments in Africa, Asia, and Latin America. Fink also offers a broader time line of the Cold War than any other text, charting the lead-up to the conflict from the Russian Revolution to World War II and discussing the aftermath of the Cold War up to the present. This thoroughly updated revised edition reflects the latest research and scholarship, includes references to a generous selection of films, novels, websites, and supplementary reading, and offers additional information about the post?Cold War period, including the ?new Cold War” with Russia. Cold War is the consummate book on this lengthy and complex conflict for today’s students and history buffs.
