«Westad has produced a grand narrative of the Cold War.

Westad, the world's foremost scholar of the Cold War, once again dazzles readers with the scope and depth of his analysis»

Melvyn P. Leffler, Edward Stettinius Professor of American History, Miller Center, University of Vir

«The Cold War is the history of the twentieth century and the foundation for our current world. Arne Westad provides a powerful analysis of why the Cold War occurred, what it meant, and why it still matters. He is especially strong in elucidating the ideas of perfection that drove very imperfect, often brutal, leaders. Westad's book links the Cold War to globalization, recent wars in the Middle East, and American rivalries with Russia and China. This is a book that everyone interested in politics and foreign policy should read. It is a riveting story, told by one of the foremost world historians»

Jeremi Suri, author of The Impossible Presidency: The Rise and Fall of America’s Highest Office

«His ambitious book wrests attention away from the classic arenas of Moscow, Berlin and Washington, and looks instead at Indonesia, Chile, Angola, China and Korea, showing how the Cold War affected the globe and how it was, in turn, shaped by events in seemingly distant lands.»

Herald Scotland

«Ambitious, perspicacious and panoramic in scope»

Financial Times

«Westad has demonstrated that it is possible to tell the vast story of the Cold War in just 600 pages...a clear and well-written summary of a global conflict»

Gerard Degroot, The Times

«A tremendous and timely history lesson for our age»

Kirkus Reviews

«Westad's panoramic history is an impressive feat»

Publisher's Weekly

«The Cold War evinces a lifetime of research and thought on the subject. Compelling ideas and valuable insights appear frequently...»

National Interest

«For generations, the Cold War was context, the inescapable setting of political life. This history sets the Cold War itself in context, within the greater landscape of world history, deeply understood, and masterfully presented. It is a powerful synthesis by one of our great historians»

Timothy Snyder, author of Bloodlands: Europe Between Hitler and Stalin
