A supplement for courses in Cold War History, The World Since 1945, U.S. Foreign Policy, U.S. History Since 1945, and 20th-century American or World History.
This comprehensive collection of more than 100 carefully edited documents (speeches, treaties, statements, and articles) traces the rise and fall of the Cold War — from its roots at Yalta and Potsdam in 1945 through the collapse of the Soviet state in 1991 — making the great events of the era come alive through the words and phrases of those who were actively involved. Set in historical context by brief introductions, the documents are arranged in chronological order, grouped into six major periods of the Cold War.
This book may be used in connection with the authors' core text, A Hard and Bitter Peace: A Global History of the Cold War, or with any other history text.
