Why Did the Cold War Happen?

Why Did the Cold War Happen?
The Cold War Era dominated politics between the United States and the Soviet Union for more than thirty years. During this time, the two superpowers tried different methods to undermine each other without outright attack. What led to this long period of mutual hostility? This book delves into this question with the help of photographs, primary source documents, historian critiques, and informative explanations.

Series Review: Moments in History
"This series explains the before, during, and after of seminal events of the 20th century in a clear, unbiased manner. The authors walk the fine line between certainty and moral ambiguity, knowing when to pass judgment and when to leave topics open for debate...Though there is no shortage of books on these topics, the combination of information and readability makes these titles good choices."
