This third edition provides up to date analysis of the Stalin era; a chapter analysing Stalin's personality; documents which graphically illustrate the bloodletting; and an examination of the Stalin cult and why it was so successful - even today."

36 editions published between 1996 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 623 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The conflict between Russia and America shaped the world for over four decades. Both were universalist powers--they wanted every country in the world to copy their model of government and economy. They could not rest until the other side had been vanquished, and until the mid-1980s this included the prospect of nuclear war. Martin McCauley looks at the epic struggle between the two superpowers that put everyone in danger. The book gives a succinct summary of the main turning points in the conflict; looks at how the whole world was sucked into the Cold War; shows how the arms race eventually bankrupted Russia; and discusses whether or not America and Russia have learnt anything from this confrontation."--Jacket

Essential reading to an appreciation of recent history -- and to a better understanding of whatever happens next
