Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book moves beyond the focus on economic considerations that was central to the work of New Left historians, examining the many other forces — domestic politics, bureaucratic inertia, quirks of personality, and perceptions of Soviet intentions — that influenced key decision makers in Washington.

Review:

"History moves fast, and it is a rare book that stays current after almost 30 years. John Gaddis's 'postrevisionist' study of how the United States and Soviet Union got themselves into such sterile conflict of interests following the defeat of the Axis remains one of the best books available on this crucial period." The Daily Yomiuri

Review:

"An exceptionally elegant and detached example of post revisionism." The New York Review of Books
