TITLEThe End of the Cold War: Its Meanings and Implications
PUBLISHERCambridge University Press
CITYCambridge, England

This book consists of scholarly essays by historians, political scientists, and policy analysts, who discuss the meaning and implications of the end of the Cold War. The essays are divided into those that deal with the nature of the Cold War and what it means for the United States and the former Soviet Union, and those that discuss regional and national issues and speculate about the future. The authors comment on the origins of the conflict between the United States and the Soviet Union, the conflicting ideologies of the two nations, and the political dynamics between the United States and all of Europe. Some of the essayists suggest that the effects of the Cold War on the United States and the former Soviet Union are key to understanding the shaky future of capitalism and democracy in Eastern Europe and the countries that were part of the Soviet Union.
