About the book:
Covering the volatile period from 1945 to 1962, this book explores the personalities & motivations of the key people who directed Soviet political life & shaped foreign policy. Two of Russia s most accomplished Cold War historians have brought us a treasure trove of arresting new information, insights, & judgments that do much to change our understanding of the Soviet Union s motives & behavior during its long & tragic confrontation with the West. This is the first account of the early Cold War written primarily from Soviet sources; & it is the first opportunity young Russian historians have had to state their views, in English, on what the Cold War was all about.
