9780099135111: Cold War: And the Making of the Modern World

Martin Walker's account of over forty years of global confrontation between the US and Russia is a masterly narrative of the Cold War's twists and turns by a journalist who was a first-hand witness to its close. Immaculately researched, drawing upon both the vast of historical literature that has been produced over the years as well as previously-closed contemporary Kremlin archives, this is an authoritative account of one of the most signficant conflicts of the 20th century.

About the Author:

Martin Walker is the Senior Director of the Global Business Policy Council and Editor-in-Chief Emeritus of United Press International. For 25 years he worked for the Guardian, holding the position of bureau chief in Moscow and Washington DC, and appeared as a regular commentator for CNN-TV.

Educated as a historian in Oxford and Harvard, he was born into the Cold War and had a ringside seat at its close. He interviewed Mikhail Gorbachev, Margaret Thatcher and George Bush, attended the great summits of the 1980s, and researched this book in Moscow, Prague, Tokyo, London and Washington. A published novelist and poet, Martin Walker has also written books on the world's press and on right-wing politics in Britain.

Review:

He tells an exciting story well, combining his journalistic skills with extensive research" * Times Educational Supplement *
