Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“Magisterial . . . This book is without question a major achievement. It is a masterly work of synthesis, weaving together in a single coherent study the various and often contradictory trends in previous historical writing on the Cold Wars origins. It is indefatigably researched . . . and most important, it is an intellectually honest work. . . . A fine book.”—The Atlantic

“A brilliant new book. . . . An invaluable contribution.”—The Nation

Synopsis:

This is the most comprehensive history to date of the Truman Administration's progressive embroilment in the cold war, and it presents a stunning new interpretation of U.S. national security policy during the formative stages of the Soviet-American rivalry. Illustrated with 15 halftones and 10 maps.
