Re: Cold War teaching book Query

Dear Dr. Seth Offenbach and H-Diplo List Members:

Out of the Cold presents a range of perspectives, including the Big Three, children of the Cold War (Susan Eisenhower), historical perspectives, and implications. I haven't assigned the book, but I've read it, and as part of the generation whose first national security memories came from Desert Storm, it helped give me a better sense of the period.

Re: Cold War teaching book Query

Dear Seth and H-Diplo List Members:

I would suggest The Routledge Handbook of the Cold War (edited by Artemy Kalinovsky and Craig Daigle). It has an international approach, and its chapters are based on the latest research in the various sub-fields/aspect of the Cold War. It is also very readable.

Re: Cold War teaching book Query

Dear Seth:

I am looking at The Cold War: A Very Short Introduction by Robert J. McMahon from Oxford UP for my Intro to World History course. Have not used it yet but it looks promising. I'd love to hear what others recommend.

Best,

Mara
