The Cold War Summary

The Cold War: And the Making of the Modern World by Martin Walker

Martin Walker's account of over forty years of global confrontation between the US and Russia is a masterly narrative of the Cold War's twists and turns by a journalist who was a first-hand witness to its close. Immaculately researched, drawing upon both the vast of historical literature that has been produced over the years as well as previously-closed contemporary Kremlin archives, this is an authoritative account of one of the most signficant conflicts of the 20th century.

Walker's book is eminently readable. He tells an exciting story well, combining his journalistic skills with extensive research * Times Educational Supplement *
