Description: Textbooks may interpret history, but the books in the Pages from History series are history. Each title, compiled and edited by a prominent historian, is a collection of primary sources relating to a particular topic of historical significance. Documentary evidence -- including news articles, government documents, memoirs, letters, diaries, fiction, photographs, and facsimiles -- allows history to speak for itself and turns every reader into a historian. Headnotes, extended captions, sidebars, and introductory essays provide the essential context that frames the documents. All the books are amply illustrated and each includes a documentary picture essay, chronology, a further reading list, source notes, and index.

The Cold War -- the bitter standoff between the United States and the Soviet Union that lasted for over 50 years -- had its roots in long-standing disagreements between the two countries dating back to the Russian Revolution of 1917. Allan Winkler collects documents, speeches, political cartoons, and correspondence to examine the Cold War's influence on American foreign policy, political activity, social trends, and even popular culture in the postwar years. The book traces the origins of the conflict and explores the long-ranging repercussions of the Cold War, which brought about the Korean and Vietnam Wars, and launched an arms race that led to the development and stockpiling of huge, potentially catastrophic arsenals. On the domestic front, the Cold War influenced policies concerning religion, party affiliation, gender, and race.
