A fully revised and updated third edition, The Cold War: A Post-Cold War History offers an authoritative and accessible introduction to the history and enduring legacy of the Cold War. Thoroughly updated in light of new scholarship, including revised sections on President Nixon's policies in Vietnam and President Reagan's approach to U.S.-Soviet relations, the book argues that  the success of Western capitalism during the Cold War laid the groundwork for the economic globalization and political democratization that have defined the 21st century. Includes extended coverage of the Cuban Missile Crisis, the most dangerous confrontation of the nuclear age thus far.
