'The Cold War is a very good combination of a comprehensive yet remarkably succinct account of the origins, development and conclusion of the Cold War that will serve as an excellent introductory text ... while providing a very handy overview for any interested reader.' - Slavonic and East European Review 80, 2002

Great read, very quick covering much of the Cold War. Very broad, but still fun to read. Recommend reading over a weekend.
