Concentrating on the years immediately after WWII but touching on events before the war's end and up to the Kennedy administration, Robert Dallek considers how the Cold War developed, looking critically at both sides of the East-West divide. Jonathan Davis keeps things scholarly, as a general rule, but also lively, adding a hint of menace to anecdotes about the paranoia in the Soviet Union, for example. With tensions recently flaring between North and South Korea, the long-ago events detailed here are still relevant. Listeners who have studied post-WWII history won't find much new, but it’s a good outline of the era and its continuing impact. J.A.S. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2010]
