A great overview of the Cold War from the lens of American politics. The authors seem fair, with plenty of praises and criticisms of every administration from FDR to George H W Bush (with some presidents favoring slightly more depending on the context of their political standing). With criticisms across the spectrum, the authors are decidedly advocates of the Kennan idea of containment as his thoughts arc their book. The authors do a good job of linking the most asinine foreign policies with sometimes selfish, yet reasonable, political motivations. The authors are always prone to what if's and are eager to fully explore those avenues.
