This book's strength is undoubtedly its offering of multiple perspectives, especially for well-established areas of Cold War history. Vanessa Walker, History in Focus The Cold War: A History in Documents and Eyewitness Accounts provides an excellent survey of the main contours of the conflict and offers new perspectives on now familiar stories of the Cold War.

Vanessa Walker, History in Focus (IHR) The publication of The Cold War: A History in Documents and Eyewitness Accounts is very timely indeed.

Andrew O'Neil, Australian Review of Public Affairs The collected documents convey a gritty and hard-edged atmosphere often lacking in other accounts of the Cold War... For anyone who doubts this, Hanhimaki and Westad demonstrate through their judicious selection of documents just how dangerous, nasty, and brutal the Cold War really was.

Noorani, Frontline (India) A fascinating compilation of documents that illuminates diverse aspects of the Cold War and from multiple perspectives. This volume is essential reading for all students of the Cold War and should prove invaluable in teaching courses on the international history of the twentieth century. Melvyn P. Leffler, University of Virginia This is a superbly-crafted collection, ideally suited to the teaching of Cold War international history in all its aspects. It deserves the most widespread classroom use. John Lewis Gaddis, Yale University
