Britain's part in the Cold War has been overshadowed by a view of the contest which sees it as almost entirely a Superpower confrontation. Recent research has demonstrated the need to provide a balance to this polarized approach and to give due acknowledgement to the significant input of the British, especially in the origins of the Cold War but also in devising important international concepts during the conflict and in contributing to its end in the early 1990s. This book draws together research on and also provides its own analysis from recently available material to demonstrate the complexity and importance of Britain's contribution to the Cold War.

Sean Greenwood is Professor of Modern History at Canterbury Christ Church University College.
'There are at least three very attractive features of Greenwood's study: its scholarship, its clarity of expression, and its historical scope. Using previously unpublished archives and memoirs, he marches us in steady formation through the first period of the Cold War, ending with Josif Stalin's death in 1953, then into the next phase that concluded in the 1970s with the rise and fall of superpower détente, and finally into the years of the Thatcher-Reagan grand alliance. This is a great story well told.' - Michael Cox, University of Wales, Aberystwyth
'A well-balanced, easily accessible, account.' - Dr P.J. Maguire, University of Brighton
'Greenwood has produced a thought-provoking and wide-ranging book which bears out the maxim that the best things come in small parcels.' - Gill Bennett, English Historical Review
'This is a judicious and fair account with extensive footnoting and a full bibliography of primary and secondary materials. It provides a most useful introduction to the question of Britain's involvement in the Cold War.' - Michael F. Hopkins, International Affairs
