My new book, Six Months in FDR, Stalin, Churchill, and Truman -- from World War to Cold War, focuses on another, equally momentous, historical transition from one era to another.   Shadow Cold War establishes Friedman as a first-rate exponent of the “new cold war history”. Globally minded, enviably multilingual, painstakingly archival, his book poses and answers.

  In his book Destined for War: Can America and China Escape A full-scale cold war thus could trigger a new stage of deglobalisation, or at least a division .   For an answer look to Norman Naimark's wonderfully surprising Stalin and the Fate of Europe, which reexamines the onset of the original Cold War. Naimark's splendidly judicious book restores the partial open-endedness of to , and demonstrates that statesmanship or the lack thereof was decisive in shaping the world that emerged.

With him in power in the USSR, argued Gaddis, that was impossible, as Stalin's dictatorship and the very survival of his authoritarian communist system were at stake in the inception and continuation of the Cold War 45 Stalin’s Strategic Goals in the Far East sources have enabled scholars to reconsider many aspects of the Korean War and Soviet foreign policy.2 Much of the discussion has focused on Stalin’s shifting attitudes toward Korea in and the factors that may have moti-.

The Cold War division of Europe was not inevitable―the acclaimed author of Stalin’s Genocides shows how postwar Europeans fought to determine their own destinies. Was the division of Europe after World War II inevitable.

In this powerful reassessment of the postwar order in Europe, Norman Naimark suggests that Joseph Stalin was far more open to a settlement on the continent 4/4(6). Get this from a library.

Joseph Stalin () was the dictatorial leader of the Soviet Union for a quarter of a century, from the late s until his death in Stalin’s mistrust of Western governments, his insincere negotiations at the end of World War II and his determination to expand Soviet communism into eastern Europe were significant causes of the Cold War.

In the course of the Second World War (–45), the Communist Party of China (CPC) and the nationalist Kuomintang party (KMT) set aside their civil war in order to fight, defeat, and expel Imperial Japan from China.

To that end, the Soviet leader Joseph Stalin, ordered Mao Zedong, the Cold War of the CPC, to co-operate with Generalissimo Chiang Kai-shek, leader of the KMT, in fighting the Second Caused by: De-Stalinization of the Soviet Union, Marxist. This work offers a major new interpretation of the Stalin's role in the gestation of the Cold War.

Based on important new evidence, Dimitrov reveals Stalin's genuine efforts to preserve his World War II alliance with the US and Britain and to encourage a degree of cooperation between communists and democratic parties in Eastern Europe.

The post-war conflict with the West came as no surprise to Stalin. In part, it constituted a continuation of the Marxist dream of world revolution, a dream revived by a series of Communist uprisings from Greece to China in the late s. In part, it was a reassertion of. Topics discussed include Stalin's economic opinions and his views on the situation in East Germany.

The final items discuss Stalin's death and the fate of some of his ministers. See also Economic Cold War, and Post Stalin Succession Struggle. (Image, Stalin at the Tehran Conference, ). The book adds a very important case study to the literature of state-guided industrialization projects in the communist world during the 20th century — such as the propaganda project Magnitogorsk in Stalin’s Soviet Union in the s, post-war steel cities in East Europe, Soviet development aid to China in the s, and finally the Soyuz.

This article attempts to resolve the historical controversy over Stalin's attitude and action toward the Chinese Communist Party in early It specifically deals with the question of whether Stalin had indeed persistently tried to persuade the CCP not to cross the Yangtze River, a move that would have resulted in a divided China.

With the aid of newly discovered telegrams sent to Moscow. Those historians who blame the Soviet Union for origins of the Cold War – its progress after is a different matter – are ultimately blaming Stalin.

For this reason, the two entities, The Soviet Union and Josef Stalin, can be taken as effectively identical. "The Cold War was a unique international conflict partly because Joseph Stalin sought socialist transformation of other countries rather than simply the traditional objectives.

This intriguing book, based on recently accessible Soviet primary sources, is the first to explain the emergence of the Cold War and its development in Stalin's lifetime from the perspective of Soviet policy making.

After Stalin's death in Marchthe Cold War changed almost overnight. The Soviet Union embarked on a course of reconciliation and greater openness. However, despite an end to the Korean War and progress on many other outstanding East-West questions, the Western world remained mistrustful of Soviet motives and policies and Soviet leaders remained suspicious of Western intentions.

The Cold War may be defined as the rivalry for world domination between East and West, that is, between the Soviet bloc on the one hand and the American-dominated “Free World” on the other, that was fought on many fronts — ideological, political, economic, military, and cultural — in the aftermath of the Second World War.
