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.

From the Back Cover:

"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."
?István Deák, 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

?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, making this a superb account of the Cold War."
?John Whiteclay Chambers II, Rutgers University
