Description

The Cold War shaped the world we live in today - its politics, economics, and military affairs. This book shows how the globalization of the Cold War during the last century created the foundations for most of the key conflicts we see today, including the War on Terror. It focuses on how the Third World policies of the two twentieth-century superpowers - the United States and the Soviet Union - gave rise to resentments and resistance that in the end helped topple one superpower and still seriously challenge the other. Ranging from China to Indonesia, Iran, Ethiopia, Angola, Cuba, and Nicaragua, it provides a truly global perspective on the Cold War. And by exploring both the development of interventionist ideologies and the revolutionary movements that confronted interventions, the book links the past with the present in ways that no other major work on the Cold War era has succeeded in doing.

Critique

'This is a genuinely 'international' history ... few genuine research monographs are so wide ranging chronologically and geographically, while also trying to absorb insights from sociology and social anthropology ... taken as a whole no historian has dealt with the links between the Cold War so fully, so broadly and so thoughtfully as Westad in this new account ... a truly seminal work, whose findings will exercise those researching the Cold War for many years.' Reviews in History

Observation

Prize-winning study of the global conflict waged during the Cold War and its legacy today.
