The Cold War’s Killing Fields: Rethinking the Long Peace


Author and historian Paul Thomas Chamberlin reframes this period in global history, offering a vital, comprehensive military history of the Cold War, and revealing how bloody the “long peace” actually was. (2018, hardcover)

“[An] eye-opening … precise, painful account of the Cold War…. what’s so valuable about Chamberlin’s book is that it draws the separate wars together into one intelligent, crisply written narrative. Doing so drives home just how relentlessly murderous the Cold War was.” –The Nation

“Chamberlin convincingly shows that the Cold War (1945–90) was neither cold nor solely a confrontation between the United States and the Soviet Union . . . Historians and other informed readers will find much to consider in this significant revisionist work.” –Library Journal
