This book addresses important, highly debated issues concerning the relationship between the Soviet Union and the United States during the Cold War. Written not long before the fall of the Soviet Union, the book poses various disputed political and historical questions about the Cold War and presents two essays that respond on two sides of each of the questions. One pairing of essays by Gar Alperovitz and Geoffrey Warner, respectively, answers the question: “Is It Likely That the U.S. Use of Atomic Bombs at Hiroshima and Nagasaki Was Designed to Intimidate the Soviet Union?” The Yalta Conference, the Vietnam War, the Helsinki Accords, the Soviet-American détente, U.S. hegemony, the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan, the Reagan Doctrine, ballistic missile defenses, arms control agreements, and the World Court are other topics considered in the book. The essays were written by scholars, policy makers, and journalists.
