The Cold War through Documents : A Global History Hardback
Edited by Edward H. Judge, John W. Langdon
This comprehensive collection of carefully edited documents-speeches, treaties, statements, and articles-traces the rise and fall of the Cold War.
The sources follow the Cold War from its roots in East-West tensions at the end of World War II to the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991.
Set in historical context by the editors' concise introductions and followed by thoughtful discussion questions, the documents are arranged in chronological order, starting with the Yalta Conference and ending with Gorbachev's resignation speech.
Drawing on selections from a variety of countries and leaders involved in this prolonged global struggle, the editors treat the entire Cold War as an era in world history, not just U.S. history. Their judicious selection makes the great events of the time come alive through the words and phrases of those who were actively involved.
