Editorial Reviews

Review

"[There is] an admirable comprehensiveness in The Cambridge History... The editors have gathered the top scholars on each topic, and many do not disappoint, even if only by offering succinct reprises of their own books." -Lawrence D. Freedman, Professor of War Studies at King's College, London, Foreign Affairs (March/April 2010)

"There has never been a Cold War history like it; everything about it is monumental.... In total, the volumes represent a successful interconnected attempt at describing the Cold War in full." -H-Soz-u-Kult

"...the volume presents a very impressive picture of the formation and globalization of the Cold War, tracing its influence on all aspects of postwar socio-political life... Illustrations, diagrams, a bibliographical essay, and a detailed index give an additional value to the volume, which beyond its research aims can be recommended for use in teaching." Nataliya Egorova, H-Diplo

"...[its] cogent summaries of various aspects and theaters of the conflict from 1945 to 1962 seem likely to stand the of time... many undergraduate courses would benefit from the assignment of some of these readings." David Kaiser, H-Diplo

"The Cambridge History of the Cold War (CHCW) marks a coming of age for Cold War studies. This multi-volume compilation provides a synthesis of the 'New Cold War History'. It is a signal moment in the evolution of the field." Mike Sewell, H-Diplo

Book Description

This volume examines the origins and early years of the Cold War in the first comprehensive historical reexamination of the period. A team of leading scholars shows how the conflict evolved from the geopolitical, ideological, economic and sociopolitical environments of the two world wars and interwar period.
