  • DESCRIPTION

    The Cold War was an economic, ideological and political confrontation. There was no single cause, no single driving force and no single factor that brought it to an end. In this incisive and thought-provoking book, Mike Sewell examines the complex historiography surrounding the Cold War as well as the events and issues themselves. Topics include: the origins of the Cold War, the globalisation of the War culminating in the Cuban Missile Crisis, the period of detente which followed, and the end of the Cold War in the 1980s.

  • FEATURES
    • The AS textbooks are ideal for students who have never studied the history of these periods before. they provide detailed background information on the period studied, and include notes explaining key terms, lists of significant dates, and focus questions to consolidate learning.
