"Featuring first hand accounts by international politicians and diplomats along with analyses by leading scholars, this unique collection of essays provides insights from multiple perspectives to foster better understanding of international relations during and after the Cold War. Experts from both sides of the "iron curtain" shed light on the origins, struggles, ending, and legacy of the conflict that dominated the second half of the twentieth century and that still affects current East-West relations, the securing and dismantling of weapons of mass destruction, and the instability of many regions. With a particular focus on diplomatic relations, the book looks at the origins of the conflict from Yalta to Korea, the prelude to De;tente from Cuba to Vietnam, followed by the move from De;tente to dialogue. It then addresses such issues as strategic weapons, the impact of the war on scientific research, intelligence, and the fall of the Berlin Wall. Lastly, it examines the legacy of the Cold War across regions of the world, including Europe, Japan, India, China, and the lessons to be drawn for today's diplomatic relations and intelligence. With contributions from Howard Baker, Jr., Sir Anthony Brenton, Susan Eisenhower, Grigoryi Karasin, Alexander Likhotal, Kishan Rana, Ying Rong, and more, the volume presents a truly international treatment of a subject of global dimensions and importance. Students of politics and international relations will find it invaluable as will Foreign Service practitioners, and instructors teaching the Cold War and foreign affairs"--

How Churchill waged war : the most challenging decisions of the Second World War by Allen Packwood( )

6 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 86 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When Winston Churchill accepted the position of Prime Minister in May 1940, he insisted in also becoming Minister of Defence. He was not going to play the chairman's role, adjudicating between the competing claims of the ministers below him. He was going to get his hands dirty and take direct personal control of the day-to-day running of military policy. This, though, meant that he alone would be responsible for the success, or failure, of Britain's war effort. In this insightful investigation into Churchill's conduct during the Second World War, Allen Packwood enables the reader to share the agonies and uncertainties faced by Churchill at each crucial stage of the war
An unlikely obsession: churchill and the jews( Visual )

He was unarguably one of world history most provocative and powerful political leaders. He was also obsessed with preserving one race that always seemed to be on the verge of annihilation. His obsession was wildly unpopular and almost cost him his career and his legacy. The man was Winston Churchill and his obsession was the Jews. This is the extraordinary story of how Winston Churchill devoted his life and times to protecting the Jewish faith from political, sociological and maniacal destruction. From his early days in Manchester to his early political career and then his defining era during World War II, Churchill's almost compulsive agenda was to study the Jewish faith, learn from it and defy public opinion that called for the end of his career and his ostracized friends
