A comprehensive reference on the near 50-year period from the end of WWII to the dissolution of the Soviet Union characterized by high political tension, constant fear of nuclear war, intense diplomacy, and the inflation of local disputes into proxy wars between the superpowers. Some 700 alphabetical entries cover the political, military, and economic aspects of the struggle, with particular attention to the events of the late 1940s and 1950s that did so much to determine the fate of nations in the decades to come. They also deal with the effects of the Cold War on the domestic politics of the US and vice versa and of other countries. Includes 65 b&w photographs. Annotation copyright Book News, Inc.
