Summary
At last, following the collapse of communism in Eastern Europe, it is possible to view the events that have shaped all our lives as a defined period of history - The Fifty Years War. Richard Crockatt provides the first comprehensive and authoritative history of the global politics of the cold war. Uniquely, his perspective is neither that of the USA nor the Soviet Union, but encompasses the goals and fears of each superpower. The Fifty Years War is a monumental achievement, illuminating every twist and turn of the first war to threaten the very survival of humankind
