A challenging study of Russia's and America's policies and attitudes toward each other since World War II. It is not a usual study of the Cold War, or just of international relations, but a sharp, thought-provoking analysis of the methods, madnesses, mistakes, and success of policy-making on both sides during each major crisis or turn of events from the Normandy invasion to the war in Vietnam.
