About the Author:

MATTHEW GRANT is University Teaching Associate in Modern British History at the University of Sheffield, UK.

Review:

"This book does an excellent job of showing the importance ascribed by several governments to the Cold war and planning for nuclear war."

- Oxford Journals, Aug 2010

'Overall, Grant succeeds in placing the history of civil defence in its wider context by showing how the five factors he identifies interacted with each other. His book makes a valuable contribution to our understanding of the politics of Whitehall as well as to the history of defence policy.' - English Historical Journal
