Reviews

Review of the hardback set: 'There has never been a Cold War history like it; everything about it is monumental ... In total, the volumes represent a successful interconnected attempt at describing the Cold War in full.' Jost Dulffer, H-Soz-u-Kult
Review of the hardback set: 'The Cambridge History of the Cold War (CHCW) marks a coming of age for Cold War studies. This multi-volume compilation provides a synthesis of the 'New Cold War History'. It is a signal moment in the evolution of the field.' Mike Sewell, H-Diplo
'As a source of essential information about the Cold War, this Cambridge History is going to be hard to beat.' The Times Literary Supplement
Review of the set: '... if [I] could recommend just three books to a reader with no prior knowledge of the Cold War - the average undergraduate, say - it would likely be this series. The breadth and depth of coverage, in disciplinary and geographical terms, is unparalleled.' David Milne, H-Diplo
'We have a waited a long time for a standard and usable reference on the Cold War that provides a solid foundation for the beginning student or general reader, while offering avenues for further research for the more advanced scholar. And now - and for some time to come - we have it.' Tom Nichols, H-Diplo Roundtable Reviews (h-net.org/~diplo/roundtables)
'The three-volume Cambridge History of the Cold War, edited by two leading historians of the Cold War, Melvyn P. Leffler and Odd Arne Westad, is ... the fruit of a grand project comprising seventy-three contributions by a vast team of international historians hailing from eighteen countries, and weighs in at some 2000 pages. It is a laudable achievement and goes a long way towards doing what pundits talk about a great deal but rarely do, that is, to globalize Cold War history. On offer here is a rich diversity of viewpoints and interpretations, and the three volumes hang together well in overarching theme and scope ... a landmark achievement, and will be indispensable for historians of the period for many years to come.' Paul Betts, German History
'Among the volumes' greatest achievements two stand out: the first is the sheer range of contributors and topics which trace this long period in world history from its beginnings in the Second World War to the dismantling of the Soviet's Empire in the 1990s. The second is the overall balanced and sustained objectivity in a field in which it is all too easy to lessen one's historical work by taking sides.' Contemporary Review
"[There is] an admirable comprehensiveness in The Cambridge History... The editors have gathered the top scholars on each topic, and many do not disappoint, even if only by offering succinct reprises of their own books." -Lawrence D. Freedman, Professor of War Studies at King's College, London, Foreign Affairs (March/April 2010)
"There has never been a Cold War history like it; everything about it is monumental.... In total, the volumes represent a successful interconnected attempt at describing the Cold War in full." -H-Soz-u-Kult
"The articles are excellent works of scholarship, making both definitive and innovative contributions to the international history of the Cold War....An indispensable addition to any college or university library." --Choice

And now - and for some time to come - we have it.:" H-Diplo, Tom Nichols
"an important investment in the field of Cold War studies which offers - after 20 years - a comprehensive overview of the era that influenced so many people's life in so many different ways." -Sari Autio-Sarasmo, European History Quarterly
"The three-volume set is a landmark achievement, and will be indispensible for historians of the period for many years to come." -Paul Betts, German History
