Review:

Praise for "Cold War: An International History" by Carole K. Fink
"Cold War: An International History" offers instructors, students, and the general public a well-organized and highly readable survey of recent history in all its implications." "Russian Review"
""Cold War: An International History" is a magnificent narrative of the Cold War from a global perspective. This is unsurprising, given Carole Fink s reputation for combining breadth of vision with meticulous transnational research. She has so clearly, gracefully and insightfully covered the crucial elements of the rivalry between the Soviet Union and the West, combining key details, recent discoveries, and transnational perspective with wonderfully cosmopolitan analysis of the larger meanings and the historical trendsall of which make this such a superb account of the Cold War."
John Whiteclay Chambers II, Rutgers University
""Cold War: An International History" is a must read for all history enthusiasts. Through her clear prose and many years of research and expertise on the subject, Carole Fink brings refreshing new perspectives to the Cold War, going beyond the conflict between the US and the USSR to include meaningful discussions of key events in Africa, Asia, and Latin America."
Istvan Deak, Columbia University
"Written by a renowned scholar of international history, this concise and masterfully composed analysis of the Cold War in global perspective cannot be recommended highly enough for undergraduate and graduate teaching. Carole Fink presents both the larger structures of the conflict but also some of its unanticipated twists and turns that make this volume very accessible."
Volker Berghahn, Columbia University
"Carole Fink, a prominent and prolific historian, manages to break new ground in her book by placing the history of the Cold War in a chronologically and geographically enlarged context. She presents this complex material in an easily comprehensible format."
Peter Kenez, University of California, Santa Cruz
""Cold War: An International History" is a well written, cogent and comprehensive recounting of the political structure of the Cold War. Its primary strengths are its accessibility and its focus on the Cold War as a global phenomenon. For faculty and students looking for a political skeleton to frame their course, this book would be a very good choice."
Cristofer Scarboro, King s College
""Cold War: An International History" is a comprehensive, analytical, and sovereign overview that provides readers with clear arguments, while never losing sight of the complexity of the Cold War. The book shows Carole Fink, one of the leading historians of twentieth-century international relations, at the height of her powers."
Holger Nehring, University of Stirling
"A perspicacious review of Soviet international relations from 1917 onwards and a deft analysis of how wrangling over the fate of Germany and Eastern Europe during and after WWII laid the foundations for the coming rivalryFink s crisp, lucid prose and judicious, even-handed assessments impart a coherent arc to complex events; students especially will find this an invaluable introduction to a watershed era of modern history."
"Publishers Weekly"
"Fink has provided a compact, objective, and insightful account that illustrates how disputes over the post-WWII fate of Europe morphed into a conflict that engulfed regions across the worldShe deftly illustrates how Third World nations became hapless pawns in the broader geopolitical struggle, and she concludes with a sharp description of the residual effects of the Cold War upon the major and minor participants. This is an ideal introductory text for college students and general readers."

More than a bipolar conflict between two Superpowers, the decades-long Cold War had implications for the entire world. In this accessible, comprehensive retelling, Carole K. Fink provides new insights and perspectives on key events with an emphasis on people, power, and ideas, along with cultural coverage from the Beetle to the Beatles. Cold War goes beyond US-USSR relations to explore the Cold War from an international perspective, including key events and developments in Africa, Asia, and Latin America. Fink also offers a broader time line of the Cold War than any other text, charting the lead-up to the conflict with the Russian Revolution and World War II and discussing the aftermath of the Cold War since 1992. Based on the latest research and scholarship, Cold War is the consummate book on this lengthy and complex conflict for today s students and history buffs.
Carole K. Fink is Humanities Distinguished Professor of History Emerita at The Ohio State University. She is an award-winning author, editor, and translator of 12 books, including Defending the Rights of Others, The Genoa Conference, and Marc Bloch: A Life in History, and has been the recipient of numerous fellowships, most recently from the Institute of Advanced Studies in Princeton, the German Marshall Fund, the US Holocaust Memorial Museum, and the Fulbright Foundation.
