Summary: In 1993 Longman published John W. Young's Companion to Cold War and Detente, 1941-91. Now, five years later, Professor Young has revised and updated the original book to take account of recent, momentous events. Although the Cold War is a chapter of history that has ended, nevertheless we all still live with its effects and its legacy. As ever the book surveys East-West relations, in all their manifestations, from the Grand Alliance of the Second World War to the aftermath of the collapse of the Soviet Union in the 1990s. Though centred on the international policies of the USA and the USSR, the book throws light on almost every aspect of postwar international history from the rise of Mao's China to the Bosnian civil war, ranging from Vietnam to Angola, from Afghanistan to Cuba, from Margaret Thatcher to Kim Il Sung. Undoubtedly it will continue to be an invaluable aid to anyone interested in the history and politics of modern times.
