Reviews

'Lowell Schwartz takes us back to those perilous early cold war days when the West possessed very little between its broadcast and the Bomb to influence and contain the Soviet Union and its satellites. This book is a real feat of reconstruction.'

- Peter Hennessy, Attlee Professor of Contemporary British History, Queen Mary, University of London
