Abstract

This introduction of the Cambridge History of the Cold War, a comprehensive, international history of the conflict that dominated world politics in the twentieth century between 1946 and 1989/90, provides an excellent overview of the development of the interdisciplinary research on the Cold War. Written by one of the two editors, who are both leading experts in the field, the Introduction elucidates how the Cold War evolved from the geopolitical, ideological, economic, and socio-political environment of the two World Wars and the interwar era, and explains the global dynamics of the Cold War international system.
