Abstract:

A historical atlas must depict complex issues in a manner immediately accessible to the reader. The Cold War has long needed such an atlas. With easily understood maps and text, this atlas meets this demand. Not only are the obvious issues addressed, such as Cuba, Berlin and so on, but the author also presents themes such as cultural issues and detente to the reader, presenting the Cold War in all its complexities in a form which is both useful and understandable.

Los orígenes, desarrollo y conclusión de la Guerra Fría resultan a veces difíciles de entender. Ésta afectó a la vida de todos los habitantes del mundo, en ocasiones de una forma que nunca llegaron a imaginar. Fue una crisis que duró décadas. En este detallado atlas se combina el uso de minuciosos mapas con explicaciones desarrolladas en texto. Los cincuenta mapas que recoge no solo son útiles, sino que resultan vitales para comprender la geopolítica de la Guerra Fría.
