Sinopsis: This volume examines the origins and early years of the Cold War. In the first comprehensive reexamination of the period, a team of leading scholars shows how the conflict evolved from the geopolitical, ideological, economic and sociopolitical environments of the two world wars and interwar period, and discusses how markets, ideas and cultural interactions affected political discourse, diplomacy and strategy after World War II. The chapters focus not only on the United States and the Soviet Union, but also on critical regions such as Europe, the Balkans and East Asia. The authors consider the most influential statesmen of the era and address issues that mattered to people around the globe: food, nutrition and resource allocation; ethnicity, race and religion; science and technology; national autonomy, self-determination and sovereignty. In so doing, they illuminate how people worldwide shaped the evolution of the increasingly bipolar conflict and, in turn, were ensnared by it.
Review of the set: 'There has never been a Cold War history like it; everything about it is monumental ? In total, the volumes represent a successful interconnected attempt at describing the Cold War in full.' Jost Dülffer, H-Soz-u-Kult
Review of the set: 'The Cambridge History of the Cold War (CHCW) marks a coming of age for Cold War studies. This multi-volume compilation provides a synthesis of the 'New Cold War History'. It is a signal moment in the evolution of the field.' Mike Sewell, H-Diplo
Review of the set: '? if (I) could recommend just three books to a reader with no prior knowledge of the Cold War - the average undergraduate, say - it would likely be this series. The breadth and depth of coverage, in disciplinary and geographical terms, is unparalleled.' David Milne, H-Diplo
Review of the hardback: '? the volume presents a very impressive picture of the formation and globalization of the Cold War, tracing its influence on all aspects of postwar socio-political life ? Illustrations, diagrams, a bibliographical essay, and a detailed index give an additional value to the volume, which beyond its research aims can be recommended for use in teaching.' Nataliya Egorova, H-Diplo
Review of the hardback: '? [its] cogent summaries of various aspects and theaters of the conflict from 1945 to 1962 seem likely to stand the [test] of time ? many undergraduate courses would benefit from the assignment of some of these readings.' David Kaiser, H-Diplo
