Reviews

[T]he most satisfactory post-revisionist treatment of American policy making to date. New York Times Book Review History moves fast, and it is a rare book that stays current after almost 30 years. John Gaddis's "postrevisionist" study of how the United States and Soviet Union got themselves into such sterile conflict of interests following the defeat of the Axis remains one of the best books available on this crucial period. The Daily Yomiuri An exceptionally elegant and detached example of post revisionism. (from the first edition) The New York Review of Books
