"Contains unsettling insights into some of the most dangerous geopolitical crises of the time."The Economist This acclaimed study from the authors of"One Hell of a Gamble"brings to life head-to-head confrontations between the Soviet premier Nikita Khrushchev and Presidents Eisenhower and Kennedy. Drawing on their unrivaled access to Politburo and KGB materials, Aleksandr Fursenko and Timothy Naftali combine new insights into the Cuban missile crisis as well as startling narratives of the contests for Suez, Iraq, Berlin, and Southeast Asia, with vivid portraits of leaders who challenged Moscow and Washington. Khrushchev's Cold War provides a gripping history of the crisis years of the Cold War.

Aleksandr Fursenko, one of Russia's leading historians, is a member of the Russian Academy of Sciences.
