Abstract

In 1945 the Second World War  came to an end, but a whole new period of war was only just beginning. This book, explores why America and the Soviet Union became locked in the  deadly stalemate of the Cold War era (1946-1989/90). It tells the story of crisis talks and subterfuge, tyrants and power struggles - and of ordinary people changing the course of history.
