Description: What did the Cold War, that ongoing near-apocalypse, do to America? To the rest of the shaken world? What was lost, what was gained? How exactly did America manage to win? And how does all this prepare us for what lies ahead? This widely praised book-a sweeping narrative of the Cold War from start to finish, from suspicion to terror, from Berlin to Beirut, from senatorial rhetoric to bureaucratic bungling-is the first major work of history to address the real repurcussions of America's Cold War, and to reveal how that long struggle set the stage for the tumultuous world we find ourselves living in today.
