For more than forty years, the United States and the Soviet Union engaged in a dangerous, wide-ranging struggle for dominance known as the Cold War. With lively, engaging text, The Cold War explores the how-and-why of this rivalry between the world's two superpowers. Examining the contrasting ideologies and circumstances of the two nations, as well as such pivotal Cold War conflicts as the Berlin Blockade, the Cuban Missile Crisis, and the Vietnam War, The Cold War illuminates an important era in world history. Captivating photographs, easy-to-use maps and charts, and accessible sidebars that highlight key material all help make this series both informative and enriching.
