BOOK EXCERPT:

Communists and capitalists united in World War II to defeat the Axis powers. But following victory in 1945 the allies became adversaries. The world's two great superpowers--the United States and Soviet Union--locked in a dramatic showdown over ideology, vision and freedom that would persist for five decades. Under the omnipresent threat of nuclear holocaust, the Cold War became the defining conflict of the twentieth century. The second of two parts, this documentary program chronicles the unrest within the Soviet bloc, the Cuban Missile Crisis, proxy-wars in Vietnam and elsewhere, Detente, the Reagan-Gorbechev era, and the collapse of the Soviet Union and liberation of its communist satellite states.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Far from being just a policy of containment ensuring national security against the Soviet threat, US policy-makers sought a campaign which would vanquish the Soviet bloc. In the name of freedom the US goverment approved propaganda, economic warfare and covert action as well as diplomatic and military action to crush the Red Menace.

BOOK EXCERPT:

The transition from the end of the Cold War to a new world order is both promising and perilous. The US and its NATO allies were caught largely unprepared by the rapid collapse of the Warsaw Pact, the sudden demise of the Soviet Union and the reunification of Germany - events that redrew the map of East Central Europe and shifted US security concerns eastward in Eurasia. They also redefined security as a condition based more on the prevention or containment of regional and civic conflicts, compared with the Cold War expectations of global or nuclear war. The next century is certain to strain US and NATO strategy considerably, if indeed NATO survives at all. A new group of interstate institutions for European security will compete for the right to claim pre-eminence in security issues. International peace-keeping and peace enforcement, whether United Nations-directed or regionally sponsored, will also challenge traditional definitions or military missions. Changes will also occur in the role of nuclear weapons in military strategy. US and Russian strategic nuclear forces will be drastically reduced, and both states will take other steps to dampen the nuclear arms race. The antagonists of the Cold War will be the collaborators of the next century in seeking to stabilize conflicts inside and outside Europe.

BOOK EXCERPT:

The conflict between Russia and America shaped the world for over four decades. Both were universalist powers – they wanted every country in the world to copy their model of government and economy. They could not rest until the other side had been vanquished, and until the mid-1980s this included the prospect of nuclear war. In a new edition of one of the best-selling books in the Seminar Studies in History Series, Martin McCauley looks at the epic struggle between the two superpowers that put everyone in danger. In a clear and accessible manner, the book: Gives a succinct summary of the main turning points in the conflict Looks at how the whole world was sucked into the Cold War Shows how the arms race eventually bankrupted Russia Discusses whether or not America and Russia have learnt anything from this confrontation Also containing a Chronology, Glossary and Who’s Who of key figures, this revised second edition of Russia, America and the Cold War is essential reading for all students of twentieth century history. Martin McCauley is a seasoned writer and broadcaster who has a wealth of experience in Russian and international affairs. His recent publications include The Origins of the Cold War revised 3rd edition (2008), Stalin and Stalinism revised 3rd edition (2008) and The Rise and Fall of the Soviet Union (2007)

BOOK EXCERPT:

This book by a leading scholar of international relations examines the origins of the new world disorder – the resurgence of Russia, the rise of populism in the West, deep tensions in the Atlantic alliance, and the new strategic partnership between China and Russia – and asks why so many assumptions about how the world might look after the Cold War – liberal, democratic and increasingly global – have proven to be so wrong. To explain this, Michael Cox goes back to the moment of disintegration and examines what the Cold War was about, why the Cold War ended, why the experts failed to predict it, and how different writers and policy-makers (and not just western ones) have viewed the tumultuous period between 1989 when the liberal order seemed on top of the world through to the current period when confidence in the western project seems to have disappeared almost completely.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Edelgard Mahant and Graeme Mount examine details of White House policy from 1945 to the 1980s to assess the extent to which the United States could be said to have had a Canada policy. They challenge the popular nationalist view that Canada has been treated as peripheral and dependent, but also counter the opposing view that Washington has respected Canadian advice and benefitted from it. Instead, they argue that for the most part Canada has mattered little in Washington and that America's Canada policy is largely an ad hoc affair.
