Monographs | 2020
A brilliantly arresting historical work, John Lewis Gaddis's The Cold War takes us as never before to the time when the world stood on the brink of destruction.

It is a story of crisis talks and subterfuge, tyrants and power struggles - and of ordinary people changing the course of history.
