Adds an element of depth to the events we witnessed during the Cold War. Not just the what but the why and how of what happened during a very tense time.

This is a well-written, easy-to-read account of U.S. - Soviet relations. I found it helpful in understanding these events which occurred during much of my life. Also, Gaddis provides some new revelations. Highly recommended.
