About this Item

A succinct and important analysis of the origins of the Cold War begins with the outbreak of the Bolshevik Revolution in 1917: ideological animosity between the Soviet Union and the United States existed from the moment Lenin seized power. The author traces the importance of the development and the growth of the U.S.S.R. as the world's other great power; in focusing on how America perceived the Soviet threat to its free capitalist economy and political culture, he suggests new ways to understand the dangerous postwar confrontation we called the Cold War. 147 pages including index. Maps. Dust jacket has a small, very light crinkle on front near lower spine; very small stain on inside front and back covers. Wonderful copy. Bookseller Inventory # 009204
