This book discusses the American role in the Cold War, in an effort to discredit theories that America’s involvement was purely imperialist. At the time the book was written, a popular theory was that the United States was taking advantage of Third World and communist countries by building an imperial sphere of influence. The author examines the building of the Soviet Union's (USSR) sphere of influence, economic factors in the USSR and the United States, and atomic weapons programs to show that, by necessity, the United States was no more imperialist than the Soviet Union. He also discusses the development and the success of the atomic bomb and its effects on Soviet and American policy. The book is organized chronologically.
