  • De-Centering Cold War Historyby Jadwiga E. Pieper Mooney; Fabio Lanza

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 44.95

    De-Centering Cold War History challenges the Cold War master narratives that focus on super-power politics by shifting our analytical perspective to include local-level experiences and regional initiatives that were crucial to the making of a Cold War world. Cold War histories are often told as stories of national leaders, state policies and the... more...

    The History Press 2000; US$ 7.99

    The Cold War dominated international relations in the second half of the 20th century in an all-embracing ideological and military conflict between communism and democracy.

    University of Chicago Press 2013; US$ 45.00

    In the United States at the height of the Cold War, roughly between the end of World War II and the early 1980s, a new project of redefining rationality commanded the attention of sharp minds, powerful politicians, wealthy foundations, and top military brass.

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 49.95

    Remembering the Cold War examines how, more than two decades since the collapse of the Soviet Union, Cold War legacies continue to play crucial roles in defining national identities and shaping international relations around the globe.

  • Teaching Big Historyby Richard B. Simon

    University of California Press 2014; US$ 34.95

    Big History is a new field on a grand scale: it tells the story of the universe over time through a diverse range of disciplines that spans cosmology, physics, chemistry, astronomy, geology, evolutionary biology, anthropology, and archaeology, thereby reconciling traditional human history with environmental geography and natural history. Weaving the... more...

  • What Did You Do in the Cold War Daddy?by Ann Curthoys; Joy Damousi

    NewSouth 2014; US$ 24.99

    The Cold War was a turbulent time to grow up in. Family ties were tested, friendships were torn apart and new beliefs forged out of the ruins of old loyalties. In this book, through twelve evocative stories of childhood and early adulthood in Australia during the Cold War years, writers from vastly different backgrounds explore how global political... more...

  • The Politics of Apolitical Cultureby Giles Scott-Smith

    Taylor and Francis 2003; US$ 54.95

    This book analyses a key episode in the cultural Cold War - the formation of the Congress for Cultural Freedom. Whilst the Congress was established to defend cultural values and freedom of expression in the Cold War Struggle, its close association with the CIA later undermined its claims to intellectual independence or non-political autonomy. By examining... more...

  • Religion and the Cold Warby Dr Dianne Kirby

    Palgrave Macmillan 2002; US$ 32.00

    Although seen widely as the twentieth-century's great religious war, as a conflict between the god-fearing and the godless, the religious dimension of the Cold War has never been subjected to a scholarly critique. This unique study shows why religion is a key Cold War variable. A specially commissioned collection of new scholarship, it provides fresh... more...

  • Good Governance in the Era of Global Neoliberalismby Jolle Demmers; Alex E. Fernández Jilberto; Barbara Hogenboom

    Taylor and Francis 2004; US$ 54.95

    This new collection critically examines the new global policy of 'good governance'. This catchphrase of aid policy and development thinking has been the subject of too little analysis to date. This book redresses the balance. It places the prefix 'good', and exactly what that means, under the microscope and examines the impact of neoliberal governance... more...
