Re: Cold War teaching book Query

Dear Seth and H-Diplo List Members,

I am currently using 'Palgrave Advances in Cold War History' by S. Dockrill; G. Hughes for a first year undergraduate class. It's a very useful collection of essays on Global Cold War historiography, especially when used in conjunction with articles from the aforementioned Routledge collection and those recent handbooks/histories from Oxford and Cambridge. It's getting a little long in the tooth already but very readable for undergraduates.
