Opening his new book with the drama of people struggling to survive in rubble-strewn countries after the Second World War, Thomas G. Paterson follows the lng Cold War crisis through to the dismantling of the Berlin Wall and the disintegration of the Soviet Union.

In his exploration of the end of the Cold War, the author concludes that the two superpowers sought detente because they had been weakened by the economic costs of the Cold War, challenges from allies, and the diffusion of power in the international system after the rise of the Third World. As historical story and analysis, On Every Front prvides a telling acount of an era - of the making and unmaking of the Cold War.
