    There was clear consensus within the US government on national priorities in terms of food supplies and a precise notion about where their allies fitted into the picture. For example, Soviet historians argue that uprisings in Kiev in —69 was a reflection of the class struggle. Yet part of Soviet historiography produced a large body of significant scholarship which continues to be used in the modern research. Gaddis outlines three important lessons of the Cold War. Trentmann Oxford,p. While Gorlizki and Khlevniuk argue that the rivalry between two factions within the ruling circle — one originating in Leningrad Voznesenskii, Kuznetsov and Kosyginthe other headed up by Politburo old-timers Malenkov and Beriia — erupted when Stalin's faith in Voznesenskii was shaken by errors he committed as leader of Gosplan, Brandenberger maintains that more fundamental ideological issues were at stake.

    I co-edited a book on nuclear diplomacy with Gaddis and two other scholars in A firm line of argument about the nature of Soviet high politics holds the text together. The product of a Missouri political machine, he had minimal experience with international affairs, having served only as senator and then just months as Franklin D. In the ideological realm, Gaddis writes that each state's ideology was "meant to offer hope" as do all ideologies. The work provides sources on issues such as Popular Antisemitism within the USSR, and does a great job illustrating the social tension within the Soviet Union.

    Each of these nations was dominated by political extremists with militaristic ambitions and driven by a determination to find new markets, new sources of fuels, new sources of food, and new sources of cheap labor. Since the late s, Soviet historiography treated the party line and reality as one and the same. In this chapter, the reader starts to sense that Stalin's right-hand men perhaps had more capacity for independent reflection than is allowed elsewhere in the book. The farms of the era were what the citizens of those countries today would without hesitation call primitive.

Each of these nations was dominated by political extremists with militaristic ambitions and driven by a determination to find new markets, new sources of fuels, new sources of food, and new sources of cheap labor. They draw on the concept of 'neo-patrimonialism' to show that while, on the one hand, Stalin used unpredictable and violent measures to retain ultimate history of post-war Soviet writing book power and prevent any potential rivals emerging, he also created a modern system of administration which would allow the effective running of the country.

Stalin's personal rule proved compatible with more rational and predictable forms of administration, particularly outside of his immediate clique. There were few more uplifting moments in 20th-century history, and it is easy to reflect on those heroic days with a certain wistfulness.

The book says that repressions, carried out by Stalin and others, were "a necessary evil in response to a cold war started by America against the Soviet Union.

Beyond exploring the conflict's origins, Gaddis superbly evaluates how nuclear weapons and ideology influenced the struggle. The Soviet dictator sought to advance Russian interests by establishing a ring of subservient nondemocratic states around his country's vulnerable western flank, while awaiting the inevitable rivalries that he believed would cause fissures and perhaps even war among capitalist nations.
