Even though this was written before the opening--albeit brief--of the Soviet archives, this is still an essential book for students of the Cold War. Paterson has an evenness of scholarship much needed for serious understanding of the period. Short, concise and fair, Paterson is an excellent gateway book for those who want to learn a more complex and honest version of the Cold War.
