Review

"A very nice introduction to a crucial period in history as well as an excellent (and gentle) lesson in historiography."

Format: Paperback
I read this book for my 1945-present class and it opened my eyes to the hysteria which plagued this country about the Cold War. This document was new to me before reading this book. It made me realize how serious people thought the threat of Russia really was. The beginning talks about how the document came to be, the middle of the book is the actual document its self, then the end has many comentaries from respected scholars and government officals. Great book for anyone interested in the Cold War and many different points of view of the Cold War.
