The Cold War

The term Cold War has had many meanings since it was used by George Orwell in 1945. Leading historian Jeremy Black offers a new, comprehensive and truly global interpretation of the Cold War. Professor Black dates the start of the Cold War not to 1945, but to 1917 and argues that China has played a much more central role in the Cold War than is often acknowledged. This book will serve as a powerful introduction to the Cold War whilst also offering many fresh insights to those who are familiar with its history.
